January 2012

‘Living Magazine brings together residents and local businesses to achieve a mutually beneficial media that supports community living’ Welcome to the January issue of Living Magazine. What a difference from 2011! I remember putting last year’s January issue together in the grip of an arctic freeze that seemed to last all winter. This winter has been the complete opposite so far, warm and wet. It just shows, you never can tell. Those of you that read my monthly note will know the importance I place on the local community. From next month, Living Magazine will be really concentrating on this important aspect. We are trying to get as much community and local information as possible to publish, so you all know what is going on in your community. To make this successful we need your help. If you are involved in community activity and want to tell people about what you do then contact us. Even if you just want to announce a meeting or event or encourage new members then get in touch and we’ll see what we can do to help. In the meantime please support our advertisers, if you can, as they are a vital part of the community, providing local services for local people.

Best wishes, Amanda

News from Capricorn by Sheila Stewart

Animal rescue

We have had a very busy Christmas and New Year, although I did get a Christmas dinner this year as we closed for 2 hours on christmas Day and went to a local pub for a Christmas meal, and it was great !

Do you remember Luke and Leah the two lurchers, who came in to us in the Summer, both very emaciated and covered in wounds and scars. Well, they have both been homed and both have returned to show us how good they now look. It is hard to even recognise them as the same dogs, and it was so good to see them looking so good and so obviously loved and members of their respective families. That is the reward we seek, knowing that they have not only survived but are fit, healthy and very much loved.

Little Robyn, the tiny 8\9 day old kitten I took in before Christmas, found cold and abandoned under a hedge hs survived and although small for her 8 weeks of age, is afraid of nothing. She beats up the dog, pinching his food then eating her own. She needs to grow a bit more before she can be inoculated and homed but she should be ready to go in about three weeks At the moment we are haveing a big sort out, we are getting all of the empty cages, hutches and pens cleaned, disinfected ready for the Spring influx of baby animals that we know will come into the Sanctuary. It is a big job and will probably take us about a week to complete but we will then be ready for Spring. I would like to thank everyone who sent donations, pet food, bedding and items to sell in our Charity Shop, we couldn’t keep going without you. We had our annual A.G.M. and Capricorn Get Together just before Christmas and everyone had a great time. This is held so that all of the volunteers, from the shops, the Sanctuary, dog walkers, members, supporters in every way can come along, have a good feast and meet everyone who is involved in Capricorn and this year Clive (he cares for our ferret population) was presented with his 5 Year Volunteer Certificate and Gladys, who runs our raffles for us, was presented with her 25 year Volunteer Certificate.

Fostering services are looking for thousands more foster families to offer safe and secure homes to all the children who need them. This press pack Why do children need fostering? provides key facts, information and case studies to help support articles and features about fostering and the need for more people to come forward. Foster carers look after children so that families have the chance to sort out their problems.

Foster carers play a key role in transforming children’s lives. Fostering is not easy, but it offers the opportunity to make a huge difference to children's lives and can be a very rewarding experience. People who want to foster need to care about children, have great communication skills and be ready for a challenge.

“You need a lot of patience with children who have been damaged. You need to stick with children, some test you to the Contact the Fostering Network media team on or 020 7620 6425 limit, then a light switches on and you see a change and you know they’re safe.” Alan Torry, foster carer


What does a foster carer do? Foster carers provide children with their day-to-day care. But fostering is much more than this. Foster carers may have to help these children come to terms with difficult or traumatic experiences. They support children in their education, look after their health and promote social wellbeing. The role is varied and challenging, and also includes attending meetings, keeping records, managing behaviour and promoting contact with birth families. Foster carers receive pre- and post-approval training and support to help them develop the skills needed to do this challenging and rewarding work. Who can be a foster carer? Almost anyone can apply to be a foster carer, but as with any job, some people will be more suited to it than others. Prospective foster carers need skills and experience that will enable them to meet the needs of vulnerable children and young people who are separated from their families. Fostering services need to recruit a variety of foster carers to offer as much choice as possible to children and young people. People can apply to foster regardless of marital status, sexuality or residential status. Foster carers come from a diverse range of ethnic and cultural backgrounds which reflect the children and young people who are in care. People who have ever been convicted of a sexual offence or a violent act towards a child are not able to apply to foster. Do foster carers get paid? All foster carers receive a fostering allowance which should cover the cost of caring for a fostered child. These vary across the UK, but in England, Wales and Northern Ireland there are national minimum allowances agreed by government. Some fostering services also pay their foster carers a fee on top of the allowance, in recognition of their time, skills and experience. Prospective foster carers should not be afraid to ask local fostering services about the financial support that they offer.

“I'm now at university doing really well for myself and I'm so much happier than before. I feel that this is due to the support I received from my foster carers when I was a teenager. They are the reason for a major turning point in my life and the reason for my success today.� Andrew Mulley, care leaver

Hawarden Rangers U10s tournament at Carrington 2011

Hawarden Rangers  were  invited  to  take  part  in  the  Manchester  United  Challenge   Cup  at  the  First  Team  Training  ground  of  Manchester  United  (Carrington)  .  On   arrival  at  Carrington  the  Hawarden  Squad  were  given  a  member  of  coaching  staff   from  the  academy  for  the  day,  their  own  changing  room  and  a  tour  of  the  facilities   at  the  complex.  The  boys  were  also  given  a  skills  challenge  to  complete  before  the   tournament  begun  where  scores  were  recorded  and  a  winner  was  announced  at  the  end.  

The Challenge  Cup  consisted  of  32  invited  teams  to  take  part  in  a  group  pool  with  the  winners  going  through  to  the  final.   Hawarden  Rangers  were  unlucky  to  come  runners-­‐up  and  were  praised  by  several  members  of  the  coaching  staff  with   regards  their  team  spirit,  attitude  and  performance  on  the  day.  This  bodes  well  for  future  Hawarden  Rangers  teams   being  invited  to  this  event.  The  U10s  played  against  Cheshire  Boys,  Cherry  Brook  from  Warrington  and  Failsworth  from   Manchester.  Hawarden  beat  Failsworth  2-­‐0,  drew  1-­‐1  with  Cheshire  Boys  and  lost  1-­‐3  to  Cherry  Brook,  the  eventual   winners.     The  pitches  were  immaculate  and  what  a  fantastic  opportunity  for  these  young  players  to  experience  facilities  such  as   these.  The  coaches  and  organisers  were  very  helpful  during  the  morning  and  hopefully  the  players  will  remember  this   experience  for  years  to  come.  All  players  received  a  certificate  and  most  importantly  a  packed  lunch  for  their  efforts!
