Catherine St Germans has agreed to become our new Patron, much to our delight. She is famed for her career in design and fashion, but, from a whippet viewpoint for her whippet Tea Party, hosted by her blue, Roo, who is shown with her. The party is held every year in May, in SE Cornwall, and attracts visitors from as far away as Leicestershire. She has recently organised the Port Eliot Festival, where there was a stall entirely devoted to our Rescue on the Saturday. We thank all those who made this possible.
We are sad to say goodbye to our previous patron, Mary Browning, who had been with us from our earliest days and retired early this year. We are so grateful for her beautiful artwork for our cards and for her constant support and help.
