No longer missing cat Cassie!

Image may contain: catFound, safe and sound, after a frantic 5 days of searching. Karen says: “We are so relieved and want to say how absolutely amazing everyone in the village has been. The kindness, support and determination to help find her has bowled us over. What a wonderful community xx”          Updated 8th November


Dear village friends, have you seen our beloved missing cat, Cassie? She was last seen on Friday afternoon on the High Street and it is totally out-of-character for her to disappear. She is a small, friendly tabby with a white bib and front paws. She was wearing a red collar but this may have been lost. Cassie is inquisitive, so might be in a barn, garage or outbuilding. It is also possible she climbed into someone’s car or van. Can you help us by checking? Reward offered. Thank you so much.

These are just some of the services which are available online as part of our Can You Click It? campaign, which aims to drive more people to the website for commonly-used services rather than phoning the customer service centre.

What’s available online?
