HOME WANTED: MAVERICK

Screen Shot 2016-03-08 at 20.54.57

One bitterly cold evening in January, a very kind lady opened her front door and found a very tatty tabby cat on her doormat. He looked totally dejected and had such a pleading look in his eyes she invited him in.

Cats Protection took him a few days later. He was neutered, de-matted and started his injections. He was very unsure of himself and people, as he had been a stray for so long, but after some TLC and good food, he has become a very loving chatty cat.

A handsome, semi-fluffy dark tabby, Maverick now thoroughly enjoys life. He loves attention and head butts all the time. He is about 4 years old and is ready to be rehomed. Ideally he would like someone to be around during the day. He will love a safe garden and would probably make friends with the cat next door!

We don’t know how he would be with young children or dogs. Can you give Maverick the loving home he so richly deserves? Please ring Sue on 020 8390 3165 for further information.

Children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities in Kingston and Richmond have been given recognition for their accomplishments at an awards ceremony.

The awards run by Kingston and Richmond’s social enterprise Achieving for Children (AfC) took place at Clarendon School in Hampton on 20 January. The event is aimed at celebrating the achievements of local children and young people and their impact they have had in inspiring other children, young people and their families.

People from across the two boroughs were invited to nominate an individual or group of children and young people they felt had done something special under four different categories; ‘impact’, ‘inspiration’,‘personal achievement’ and ‘recognition’.

The AfC team received over 100 entries for judging. Nominations were judged by panels made up of a parent, professional and a young person. Twenty nominations were selected as outstanding by the panels.

Cllr Richard Hudson, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Children’s Social Care and Health at Kingston Council, said:

“Having an awards ceremony to recognise the hard work of these individuals is a fantastic idea and are a great way of helping those with special educational needs gain self-confidence. I am confident that they are hugely appreciated by those who receive an award.”
