 A new Project: Let's keep cats out of the Park

  We have received a grant from HBCC to do a project to raise awareness about the problems caused by cats in the park. This will involve a Poster competition  for local school children in 2020 and display of the posters.
Note: this project has been extended into 2021 because of the school closures in 2020.
