Hi everyone. Sorry I've not been down for a while, think about 5 or 6 weeks Things have been a bit hectic with one thing and another. I was just wondering do I need to re-register to come back? (Think my walker number is 219). I have been keeping an eye on the forum seeing who's found their forever homes and love reading all the walker updates. Really miss being there seeing all the lovely furry ones Also was wondering if you still need any help for the Summer Show on 3rd Aug? Hope to see you soon Sarah x
We are holding another induction session for walkers so if you have expressed an interest, we'd love to see! Its going to be on Sunday 28th September at 10am. We ask for a commitment of 2 hours per week and these can be walked anytime between 8am and 3.45pm. Weekday walkers are especially needed
If you fancy joining us please complete the registration form which can be found here . We wont be emailing back so just complete the form and we'll see you on the 28th!!
Although our dogs will be spending Christmas Day in a kennel, we are going to do everything we can to make the day special for them!
We will be walking the dogs as usual.
Registered walkers - please bring your leads and your happy feet, arrive between 9 - 9.30am. Unregistered walkers are also welcome, please join us at 9.30am prompt for a mini induction. Bring proof of ID and a sense of humour! Dogs have to be back in their kennels by 11.00 am latest for their nap before they tuck into their Turkey-with-all-the-trimmings Christmas Dinner!
And in the afternoon, instead of watching the Queens Speech, our precious pooches will be listening to soft, sweet carols whilst they are playing with their new toys, and enjoying their stuffed hooves & filled bones which have been so very generously donated. On Christmas night, they can all sleep peacefully, dreaming about their forever homes
Start your Christmas Day by doing a kind thing for a homeless dog, it's the least we can do for them whilst they are waiting to meet their forever families.
Hi, is there an induction today? I missed the last one and just realised that this month's one may have been last weekend!
Hi, there's no induction today. We hold them on the last Sunday of the month so the next one will be on the 29th of November at 10am. If you don't already, follow our Facebook page, we always put out reminders on there.
Our 'Last Sunday' inductions have been a fabulous success! Due to the number of requests for an alternative to Sunday inductions, we decided to ring the changes in April, and held this months induction on Saturday, 23rd at 12.30pm
We sparked up the barbie, put on t'kettle, and thanks to our seasoned Pilgrims who turned out in force to welcome our 'newbies' a great day was had by all, not least of all our dogs!
We'd like to say a big 'welcome' to all our new Purple Pilgrims
Here are some pics from the day!
Registration ran like clockwork! Get your walker number here! Michele, our key admininstrator!
Queuing for your walker number isn't so bad when Chef du Jour M. Ricki Brothwell is in charge of the barbie tongs!
As ever, we are so grateful to our fab friends at Welsh Bros, who provided the comestibles for the day!
Jen & Ricki
Becky: How may I serve you today?
Seems to be going down a treat!
Pre-induction was a good opportunity to chat with seasoned Pilgrims.
Waste not want not eh?
Away to the garden for the Baglady Briefing!
With grateful thanks to Tai! Our 'Four on the Floor' demonstrator, and 'How to say hello to a strange dog' stooge! He was golden!
Thank you to everyone who turned out for our April induction!
As the last Sunday in May falls the day before the Fonmon Show - which is going to be an 'all hands on deck' event for Friends, we haven't yet set a date for the May induction, but please keep an eye on this post and our Facebook and Twitter feeds for details.
