Kitten Found

I have been requested to ask if anyone has lost a 12 week old black kitten.  It was found in Marbury yesterday, on School Lane, and left at a house at Norbury Town Lane.  It is now at Leonard Bros. Veterinary Practice in Whitchurch waiting for its owner to collect it.  Apparently it is a very friendly little cat, quite used to people.  


Please pass the word around ......  thanks.  Jan Makin

rotary logoChristmas Lunches

Whitchurch Rotary Club will again be providing FREE Christmas Lunches to people who wouldn't otherwise get a Christmas Lunch, in the recipient's own home on Christmas Day.  These lunches are prepped on Christmas Eve and cooked on Christmas morning in the kitchens of Sir John Talbot's Technology College, by a team of Rotarian volunteers and helpers, and distributed by car.  
Those who might be eligible for a Christmas lunch include elderly or disabled single people or couples living at home without the support of close family members. Last year Rotary provided about 100 lunches in Whitchurch and the surrounding villages.  For many of the recipients, the visiting Rotarian would have been their only human contact on Christmas Day. If you know of anyone who might appreciate a lunch, please let Chris Smith know in the strictest confidence (tel 01948 780114). If you would like to join in and help (all the family are welcome) please ring Chris on the above number.  

Whitchurch Rotary Club is currently recruiting men and women of all ages. If you would like to support your local community on a regular basis, meet new friends or widen your circle of business contacts through networking,  please contact Chris.
