Pets Corner - Kidderminster
A lovely evening spent with the staff at Pets Corner Kidderminster who kindly invited Forest Dog Rescue to their informal coffee evening to allow local animal related businesses to get to know each other. Lovely cakes and cool drinks for us, and for our four legged friends biscuits from Katie's Canine Kitchen and iced treats made by the staff that all the dogs enjoyed on a very warm evening. It was nice to see Hall Green Retired Greyhound Trust there, along with other various people, a most enjoyable evening had by all, and Thank you to Pets Corner for inviting us.

Mike Smith Guitar Academy Students
Last Saturday evening (11 June,
Kidderminster Town Hall) we had the pleasure of listening to a group of very
talented musical students of all ages, all have been guided and taught by the
Mike Smith They truly did him proud
including his daughter Hollie along with another female vocalist, Charlotte!
The students had to learn given
tracks by CD, then get up on stage and come together as a band and play their
hearts out with no previous rehearsals at all with other members, what an
astonishing achievement this turned out to be.
It’s no easy task to get up on stage and just get on with it so to
speak, even the compere (Jeremy Brett) had to fill in with 3 minutes between
each song totally unrehearsed! Well done Jeremy you did a really good job lol.
During a sort of interval, we were entertained by Pat Aston, he is also
one of Mikes acoustic students and did 4 songs completely on his own, so
Forest Dog Rescue would like to pass on their heartfelt thanks to each
and every one who made this evening such a success, we’re guessing Mike has
endured a few sleepless nights while getting all this together, well done Mike
and thank you so much, you must be so proud.
