New Year, new growth on the Home Reserve

Happy New Year to all our supporters throughout the world. For those of you who welcomed 2018 in; I hope you did so safely and not now suffering from the self-inflicted festivities!


A walk around the Home Reserve this morning reveals new growth already, and a 'pathway' of both crocus and snowdrop shoots were there to greet me, as I walked through the Memorial Woodland part of the reserve.


Alas, the first call of the day was from someone finding an injured owl in Oldham; most likely traumatised from last nights' fireworks. Hopefully it will make a full recovery, and it is now winging its way to their nearest rescue centre (details and advice given). Here in Rochdale thankfully the fireworks were not as bad as in previous years, and I sat up until gone 1am with all our rescued animals to ensure they were as comforted as possible during the tortuous time.


Let us hope that 2018 brings a good year of health, happiness, kindness and prosperity to all.
