Chatter box Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in Old Windsor is celebrating 35 years of rescuing and rehoming thousands of dogs and cats in Surrey and Berkshire by holding a garden tea party for local animal lovers.

The event on Saturday 20 September marks 35 years since Battersea took over Bell Mead Boarding and Grooming Kennels in 1979.

Kaye Mughal, Battersea Old Windsor's centre manager, said: "I feel privileged to work for Battersea at Old Windsor and proud that we have helped so many animals over the last 35 years. We have seen our fair share of desperate cases in need of help, and found thousands of dogs and cats new homes to call their own."

The event runs from 12pm to 4pm and will include tea, cakes and games for all the family. For more information visit  Chatter box

BEVA Trust to launch vet volunteer pilot projects

Following a review of its activities and an assessment of BEVA members views, the BEVA Trust is set to launch a series of vet volunteer pilot projects. The projects will help to decide whether BEVA members' willingness to donate their own time can be used in ventures to improve equine health and welfare.

The review was undertook by experts from veterinary, equine, charity and commercial sectors. They considered the evolution of the Trust and gathered the views of BEVA members, to assess what charitable activities were needed and achievable. It was strongly agreed that BEVA should have a philanthropic arm and a significant majority expressed that they would be willing to donate their time in support of the trust.

In response to the review, the Trust now plans to make use of the expertise and significant intellectual capital within BEVA and put it to a charitable purpose through pilot partnerships with existing NGOs. An initial series of projects will involve collaboration with UK and international organisations, including the British Horse Society, to put equine veterinary volunteers on the ground to provide clinical skills and education.
