Andy the cat with thyroid problems is making excellent progress.  His coat is now very shiny and when he went for his first vacination (one month after his operation) he had already put on 1kg.  This lovely cat is happy to spend his days sitting on a chair in the sunshine and will make someone a delightful companion.   Pixie, another little cat in our care also has hyperthyroidism.  Up to the present time she has been having regular blood tests to identify the level of medication she requires to treat the condition.  Although her condition has improved since receiving treatment, she will be going to the vets this week, to see whether she too is a suitable candidate for an operation.

Nelson, a dear little black and white kitten, about 4 months old, recently came into our care as his previous owner had obviously abandoned him.  He had a heavy infestation of fleas and was suffering from cat flu.  He also had a large ulcer on his tongue and was unable to enjoy his food as he should.  The fleas were soon dealt with although it took several days of regular grooming to remove all the evidence from his coat.   After several days on antibiotics and being fed with a syringe he began to show signs of improvement.  Happily, this very gentle and affectionate kitten is now fully recovered and enjoying playing with his toys and the other kittens.  We would dearly love to him to find a good home with someone who will give him the care that he deserves.

If you are looking for a cat or kitten, call Stephanie on 01692 535858.   Alternatively you can visit for a description and photographs of the cats before giving her a call on the above number.


I would like to take this opportunity to say a big personal thank you to every one who has been involved in the development and success of the LAMS project at St Josephs Church Hall Sheringham.  We have an outstanding team of volunteers who work with the members to ensure they have an enjoyable day.  We have an excellent team of volunteer drivers who work alongside local community transport organisations to ensure people arrive safely.   The Crossroads care staff are always prepared to go the extra mile when delivering their service.   I would also like to especially thank the steering group made up of carers, members and volunteers, who have and still are putting in an enormous amount of hard work to ensure the continued success of the Centre.

LAMS is an excellent example of community partnership working in its widest sense.   To quote LAMs motto, 'Together we can make it happen' and we have.  Well done everyone.

At a recent meeting of the Rotary Club of Aylsham President Mike Downes made a donation to the Aylsham First Responders. Linda Campbell and Jason Smith represented Aylsham First Responders and attended the meeting to be presented with a cheque for 500.  First responders is a recent addition to the East Anglian Ambulance NHS Trust's level of cover for local areas, the Aylsham group now numbers 14 volunteers and they have recently taken delivery of a defibrilator which upgrades their capability to deal with patients suffering with heart problems.  First Responders are all local volunteers who receive training and their role is to make emergency call-outs in order to assist until full-time paramedics or ambulance personnel arrive.
