Connor is a Spanish Mastiff crossbreed puppy who was born at the beginning of September. He and his brother were abandoned as tiny puppies in Spain, but they were both lucky enough to be rescued early on.
Connor is a very friendly and loving boy. He has settled really well into his foster home and is progressing brilliantly with his toilet training. He is good with both adults and children, although he will be a large boy when fully grown, so we would suggest that he is not homed with babies or toddlers.
Whether it’s lunch with work colleagues or an evening celebrating with friends, most of us tend to eat out more over the festive period.

Are you tired of the super chaotic, overly commercialised Christmas period? We are too. Here is a little throwback to the ghost of Christmas past to revisit some much-loved Christmas traditions that few families still take part in today. Why not try some of these yuletide traditions this Christmas to bring back the magic of the holidays of the past.
Remembrance Sunday is just a few weeks away which will commemorate and pay respects to British Service members who are sadly no longer with us.
Every year on the 11thof November, a two-minute silence is given to honour and remember the men and women who have served and continue to serve our country during times of war, conflict and peace. This moment of silence marks the day that World War 1 ended, at 11am on the 11thday of the 11thmonth, in 1918.
The Arborfield Service will be held as usual this year at the Arborfield Cross Village Memorial on Sunday 10thNovember at 10:45am. The parade will form at the Arborfield Royal British Legion Club at 10:30am and refreshments will be served there afterwards.
Arborfield’s Military Wives Choir will be joining the community on Remembrance Sunday to honour the fallen at the annual Remembrance Service at Arborfield Cross. It would be great to see as many of the local Arborfield residents as possible to unite and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.
Local Mum, Sarah Smith, explains her invention to help other parents.
Like many first time mums I found the initial stages of motherhood a huge shock. Nobody could have prepared me for the relentless exhaustion and the overwhelming sense of responsibility.
With Summer holidays upon us, I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite beauty must-haves.
Holiday hair can sometimes be a challenge with humidity and the change in water playing a part. However my secret weapon… Salt spray! This will help give your hair volume and texture. It works really well for most hair lengths, and for those of you with mid to long hair, this product will really help create that “beach wave” look. Simply spray into towel dried hair, gently scrunch into mid-lengths and ends and leave to dry naturally.
