Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

TRANSPORT OF LIVE ANIMALS TO THE CONTINENT

Date: 11th April 2017

I am totally against this barbaric practice and what for!  Our abattoirs are predominantly of a higher quality and more rigorously controlled than many on the Continent.  And why should people demand that the animals be transported 'on the hoof' - put to a great deal of suffering and anguish  which is totally unnecessary.  The animals are packed into containers very often without sufficient water and what happens when there is a hold up at the Ferry - a regular occurence.

I am supporting a petition which is attempting to gain 100,000 signatures which then makes it mandatory to be debated in Parliament.

Even if you are a meat eater, I'm sure you wouldn't want the animals to be mistreated - and don't get me onto the subject of Halal!!

So if you would support the cause and have the creatures slaughtered humanely (hopefully) in this country and then transported, please sign the petition.

Thank you - with loving thoughts for your kindness- Jan
