Last time I got a bag contacted local charity shop British Heart to find out if they had put these out they informed me they had.the reason why I put this on this page because there are a lot of bogus collections so if you are not sure check online.

I've had loads of Sycamore seedlings too - they are everywhere much worse than usual.  Maybe the conditions are just right for most of them to grow this year -what an awful thought a lawn full of trees!!  Better get back out there & pull them all up!

dog and guinea pig boarding

Recommendations in Greenwich

Can anyone recommend a dog kennel in Ipswich? I've seen a couple advertised but they seem rather big and I'm not sure they would be suitable for a nervous dog.  Also I have two guinea pigs which I need to board, any ideas?

Sorry Maisie, no difference!  I don't tend to use the phrase dog boarder as that's also what kennels do, and looking after someone's dog in your own home is nothing like putting them in a kennel!
