When Molly came to visit…
Last week, Youth Club met Molly the dog and we learned about how to be a responsible dog owner.
We made (human-edible) dog biscuits in 3 different flavours to see which one Molly liked the best.
The flavours were peanut, tuna and oxo! Molly liked the raw dough and was quite full before we even got round to the doggy taste test, but we think she preferred the peanut flavour.
For those of us that don’t have a pet we made some doggy biscuit gift bags and labels to share with our friends or families dogs!

And they think it’s all over…
It is now… Euro 2020 in 2021 has finally ended with Italy winning the tournament, beating England in a thrilling penalty shootout.
Congratulations to Italy and commiserations to the England team. England did well to get through to the final and gave all the fans something to hope and cheer about. They played their very best.
