“Smithy’s Kennel

dsc_0686-2I am sure you will all remember the generosity of Wendy Trigg and family who in memory of her late Husband, Tony, enabled us to renovate the entrance and patio area of the Sanctuary, now known as “Tony’s Corner”.  Unfortunately Wendy has also had to let their beloved greyhound “Smithy” cross the Rainbow Bridge.dsc_0690

However Wendy resolved that the life and passing of “Smithy” should be remembered in a positive way. After some discussion and several phone calls it was decided that a couple of items on our “Wish List” could be achieved thanks to the very generous donation from Wendy.

dsc_0687We have now a designated recovery kennel in the Brindle Block and also a state of the art CCTV installation at the Sanctuary. The recovery kennel has its own camera and the entire facility is now covered by the CCTV. And now the team can check on what’s happening at Fen Bank anytime as the images can be streamed to their iPhone/Pad or home PC.

Wendy accompanied by her friend Gill, who has been another stalwart supporter of Fen Bank for many years, came along to officially open the recovery kennel and view the CCTV. We were also able to show Wendy where a memorial plaque to “Smithy” had been placed in the memorial garden.

The recovery kennel is now of course known as “Smithy’s” and all at Fen Bank are truly grateful for the two wonderful additions to the Sanctuary that Wendy and her family have made possible during 2016.
