hangri-La Cattery is a boarding cattery but also helps rescue and rehabilitate cats and kittens for the RSPCA! We pride ourselves on giving the best holiday for any guest that comes to stay with us. Our RSPCA work is carried out mainly by volunteers who give up their spare time to look after any cats/kittens in our care. The RSPCA rely heavily on volunteers, therefore are always looking for people who can help within the cattery, fostering, vet runs and home checks. One cat still in our care is Jerry, this lovely boy came to us initially after being found injured from a road traffic accident. He was in a poor state and needed emergency surgery to save his back leg and was in a metal frame for many weeks. When the frame was removed Jerry then needed lots of gentle exercise to build up the strength and muscles in his hind quarter! Jerry is now back to full fitness and would love to find a forever home. He loves other cats so ideally would want a friend or two to share a home with. Jerry is just one of the many cats we’ve worked extremely hard to rehabilitate and deserves his happy ever after.

ST PETER & ST PAUL:

The Perfect Day

The sun was just rising as I jumped out of bed And I smiled as I thought of the day ahead I’d planned it so long, The Perfect Day I really hadn’t the time to pray The day would begin with a long long soak, Did I really say that, it must be a joke, Then I’d go for a walk , find a quite shady nook While away the hours and read a good book This day was for ME and only ME And this was the way it was going to be I’d worked so hard it seemed only fair That the day was for ME and not to share Oh dear, the phone is ringing, who can it be? The children to mind, ‘only two hours you say’ ‘mmm’ oh well thats not long in a Perfect Day A knock at the door, Mrs Browns had a fall Could I pop round she’s in the hall Oh and on the way, there’s shopping she’ll need And don’t forget the cat needs a feed Mr Smith feels very low Just pop in and say hello The hours of my day were dwindleling fast Surely it wasn’t too much to ask Oh well my Perfect Day was not to be For GOD had other plans for me If I’d only prayed at the start of day I would have heard what he had to say The sun is setting I go to bed I close my eyes and start to pray And thank God for a Perfect Day.

Southend Ordinariate Mission at St. Peter’s Catholic Church, Eastwood Road North, Leigh on Sea SS9 4BX www.stpetereastwood.org http://jeffwoolnougholw.blogspot.com

The Hockley Members of the Southend Ordinariate Mission wish all our friends a glorious Eastertide. Many do not realise that the season of Easter lasts for Fifty Days and Holy Mass is offered every-day at St. Peter’s, please see our website for details. The Ordinariate was created six years ago by the then Pope, Benedict XVI, offering Anglicans a home in the Roman Catholic Church – a home, that through membership, would preserve much of the liturgical and spiritual patrimony received from our formative Anglican years. If this way of becoming a Catholic interests you then call the Group Pastor, Father Jeff Woolnough on 01702 522879 who will be happy to talk to you. In the meantime May God bless you all!

You are not who others say you are. You are not who society says you are. You can find a new identity in God – Join us to find out more – 11am each Sunday. Hockley Living

The State Of Our Roads

W

hen will they get a grip on the state of our roads? Some pot holes have been repaired but as soon as one is done another appears. When I was a child living in London they seemed to always be resurfacing the roads, now it seems to happen once in a blue moon, and what about the state of our pavements. About a month ago they came round and painted orange spray paint on all the dodgy areas of paving and that is a lot believe me. A few days later someone else painted out some of these markings, in our road and other roads, with black spray paint. I rang Essex County Council who assured mePage that1they never use black spray paint and 24/7/09 9:07 am they would investigate. Of course I never heard any more about this and most of the paint marks have faded without any repair taking place, and what about the street lighting. Lights not working and lampposts knocked over and missing, don’t get me started! Alan James

I

f you believe the box sash style of window remains the most beautiful window of all time, you will appreciate the elegant yet pioneering designs of the Bygone Collection available from Seemore Glass.

Sash windows from the Bygone Collection are approved for use in conservation areas, will blend in seemlessly with their surroundings and give your home a feel of character and period charm while being “A rated” for optimum thermal performance. Along with all this aesthetic design comes security, Bygone Sash Windows are PAS24 approved and have obtained the Police preferred Security by Design endorsement.

The Seeds for Great Britain

A

s Britain heads for its momentous exit from the EU; a vacuum of both potential and uncertainty now looms over our nation. Which paths should we follow? Which bridges should we build and maintain? What foundations should we have for Great Britain? Now can be the time for Britain to focus on the fundamentals for its people, industry, production and global partners. Now can be the time for Britain to be free from the political obligations the EU weighs upon its members; and develop into both an aspiring economy and a global companion. First, we should try and develop stronger foundations within our society so that our economy can grow and prosper. There can be more apprenticeships which can become an almost necessary and reliable step into the world of Britain’s employment. Apprenticeships which are no longer rare and a lucky gifted opportunity, but more consistent and competitive across all industries. The value of living costs need to reflect the expectations and income of British citizens and we can build a stronger public sector too. With more support from the government and the high-end profit-making spectrum of the private sector; more people’s lives could begin to find a luxury of living again. We cannot afford to let the fast-forward pace of big, bureaucratic politics manipulate and saturate the lives of this country’s people and the life of its economy. Plant the seeds in the foundations forming for the independence of Great Britain. Foundations for Great Britain www.foundations4gb.com foundations4gb@outlook.com Hockley Living
