Watch out for your Fish!
Otters have been attacking the village! In the Crescent there were two ponds full of specialist fish such as Koi Carp. One pond was emptied completely and the other pond was attacked with the smaller fish gone and a larger fish injured.

The intact pond was modified to stop further damage, although their have been signs of another attempt to get into the pond. Otters are also believed to have emptied a fishing pond on the Saham road and also another pond in central Ovington. So if you are keeping expensive fish - beware. It is believed that the Swimming pool on Carbrooke Road is still safe, unless it has been booked by little fury animals!

Home for a cat?
A stray Tom cat called Ginger is living in the Crescent. He has been there since the summer and no one has claimed him. He has been heroically looked after by Gerry and Kim, but Winter is here and he is living outside.

If you need a cat let us know. Contact Jeremy on 01953 883953
