Croydon Council dog warden service works in close partnership with Dogs Trust to help promote responsible dog ownership. They held a Dog Awareness Event in Lloyd Park yesterday which was a great success.
“Yesterday’s event in Lloyd Park went really well, the sun came out and we micro-chipped 12 dogs, updated the microchip details for 6 and handed out 11 low-cost neutering vouchers. Some dogs also had a go at our fun agility.”
“By preventing unwanted litters and ensuring dogs within the borough are microchipped and up to date, we are able to help tackle the problem of unwanted strays and reunite missing dogs with their owners much faster without the need for kennelling, so this was a great outcome.”
They are also running a ‘£35 Neutering’ initiative during 2017 and it is not too late to see if you qualify for help.
There is a UK wide overpopulation of unwanted dogs and although this is due to a large number of unscrupulous backyard breeders, there are also many owners who would like to have their dog neutered but simply cannot afford it, which leads to accidental litters, continuous straying, dog thefts and unneutered dogs being sold to new owners, antisocial behaviour involving dogs and dangerous dogs so it is hoped that this initiative will help curb these problems.

Due to popular demand, Surrey Street Sunday Market will be relaunched from 17 September 2017!
The Sunday market seeks to provide local residents and visitors with an alternative range of goods and foods as well as an exciting events programme.
Croydon Council would love to hear what you would like to see and experience from the Sunday market, including the types of goods sold and events hosted.
Get involved and complete our short survey by 3 September 2017 to give them your views: https://getinvolved.croydon.gov.uk/survey/510

The annual awards ceremony is a chance to celebrate the exceptional people who make Croydon a brilliant place for people to live, grow, work and visit.
This could be someone who has made an outstanding contribution to the health and well-being of residents, a person who takes pride in keeping Croydon clean and green or a young person who has transformed their own life and is now helping others do the same.
Nominations can be made in 10 categories, which are:
All entries must be submitted by Friday 8 September. The finalists in each of the categories will be announced later that month and invited to attend a glittering ceremony on Tuesday 17 October where the award winners will be revealed.
Mayor of Croydon Councillor Toni Letts, said,
“There are so many unsung heroes in Croydon, who selflessly put in a huge amount of t
ime and effort to not only improve the lives of those around them, but also the lives of the wider community. These awards are a fantastic way of recognising and celebrating what they do and nominating someone you know could also be the perfect way to say thank you.”
