The Cinnamon Trust is the national charity for the elderly and terminally
ill and their pets. We seek to keep owner and pet together for as long
as possible with the help of a national network of volunteers who assist
when day to day care poses a problem.
We have a resident of Hindley Green asking for our support to walk their
dog but not enough local volunteers to be able to help them, so wondered
if you have a community newsletter or notice boards on which we could
publicise our need for more help in the area.
Our aim is to relieve the owners of any worry concerning the welfare
of their pets both during and after their own lifetime making us unique
All volunteers help in the ways that are most appropriate to them. Teams
take it in turn to visit housebound owners to take the dog for a walk,
they offer help with cat care, volunteers foster pets as one of their
family when owners face a spell in hospital, they take pets to the vet,
even clean out the budgie's cage. We take any problem posed in day to
day care of pets. Contact Sally direct on 01736 758707 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

The emphasis is on creating a safe yet exciting low maintenance environment
using grassy mounds and wooden and stone play structures, natural
grasses and low scramble nets, for under 10s. Structures are designed
to improve children's balance, co-ordination and fitness level. In
addition we have incorporated structures that encourage wildlife,
so strengthening the children's relationship with nature. The naturalistic
spaces will act as a springboard for children's engagement with the
surrounding woodland and the natural environment and encourage them
to take part in creative activity. Click

We need to get as many surveys completed as possible.

and ask people to fill out the questionnaire. Attached is a flyer
for more information.
