Scribble Wire Greyhound Sculpture Workshop 3rd April

Only a few places left on the workshop run by Chris Moss, Wire Sculptor. A unique opportunity for beginners to make their own greyhound wire sculptures (20 – 25cms high) from scribble wire.  Attendees need to wear practical, old clothing, closed shoes rather than sandals, and those people who wear glasses for reading, or close-up work also need to bring them along.  Cost per person is £50, to include refreshments and a light lunch.  Please contact Tia (01302 772935) to book your place. The workshop runs from 10am to 4pm, and you get to keep your masterpieces.


Tia Spring Fair

The Spring Fair is just 3 weeks away (Sun 14th April, 11am to 4pm). Don’t forget we will be running a Tia Craft Stall, and welcome donated handcrafted items to sell on it. Also, we would be most grateful for any tombola prizes plus alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks for the bottle stall. Thanks.

Thank you Chris

Thank you Chris

Hi Deb,
Just wanted to say hello and remind you how amazing you are to thank you for all the work you do for the greyhound and lurcher rescue world. After re-homing our first grey back in 2002 when Tia was based at Sowerby Bridge (a lovely darkie called Whitney) and having 9 happy years with her, I eventually felt ready in 2017 to re-home another and was happy when you introduced us Romo who we took in and has given us so much joy since. See the pictures enclosed! He lives a lovely life with plenty of walks, lots of love and lots of people around him. He laps it up and deservedly so.
Every day when I walk Romo, at least one person stops me to ask about him and comment on how lovely he is. I always take all these opportunities to sing the praises of Tia and do my best to promote both you and the charity. You do a brilliant job and I think you need to be reminded of it now and again.
Thanks for all the brilliant work you do and for your wonderful dedication to the lives of these noblest of dogs.
With warmest wishes,
