Since opening in September 2013, we’ve been prioritising works to improve the state of repair and condition of our premises, in ways that can best improve the dailylives of our resident Greyhounds. Our first priority was to carryout all necessary repairs to our kennels and paddocks, and now that those basic works have been done, we’ve turned our attention to our Greyhound Kitchen and Greyhound Medical Room. As you can imagine, funds for works of this nature are extremely limited, but thanks to the support and generosity of the Swanley branch of Howdens Joinery, who have very kindly donated a set of kitchen units, workstops and sinks, we have been able to replace our old rickety garden tables(!) to create a much safer and user-friendly area in which to prepare meals at feeding times.
As the before picture shows, preparing meals for 40 plus hounds, using three rickety old garden tables was not ideal! Thanks to Howdens we now have full length runs of quality worktops, which is making dinner time and washing up so much easier for Karen and her volunteers!
