18 NEWS & MAIL WEDNESDAY, JULY 8, 2020 YOUR COMMUNITY NEWS Handsome Anton’s ready for new home Anton will need a cat-savvy owner who is prepared to put the time and effort in. It is not known what he is like with other cats, so he would be best in a home without them, and he is not suitable to be homed with dogs. A quieter home is needed, ideally with someone at home during the day to be able to spend time with him. An adult-only family, or with children over 12 would be ideal. He will need a home in an area well away from busy roads, with a safe garden to explore. If you think Anton could be a match for you, go to uk/farnham/adopt-a-cat, or call 01252 334 644. ANTON is a very handsome young man, believed to be around four years old. He was found living as a stray and was being fed by a member of the public until he came into the care of Cats Protection. He was understand­ably quite nervous when he first came into foster care and his carer did not see him for the first few weeks, as he hid away until he felt safe. Once he ventured out, and started to relax, his real personalit­y started to shine through. On an initial vet check, a heart murmur was detected, but there has been no trace of this on subsequent checks, although a recurrence in the future cannot be ruled out. Anton Aldershot Military Museum HAMPSHIRE CULTURAL TRUST Groups secure funds to support veterans cillor Andrew Joy said: “I am delighted that through our partnershi­p work with community groups and other local authoritie­s, we have been able to improve access to these crucial resources across the county. “Hampshire is home to one of the largest veteran population­s in the UK, so these hubs will provide a vital lifeline, ensuring access to advice, support and services under one roof, as well as opportunit­ies for veterans to connect. Now, more than ever, it’s important they can easily access the support they need.” veterans across the south-east. Hampshire County Council received more than £23,000, which will be split between a number of group’s across the county. Aldershot Military Museum will use the funds to help further develop the existing veterans’ work they have been providing and Rushmoor Healthy Living will be using the money to sett up the new monthly Gurkha Veterans’ Hub. Announcing the funding during Armed Forces Week (June 22 to 28), Hampshire County Council Coun- TWO groups from Rushmoor have been awarded funding to help them continue to provide support to veterans in the area.

Funding has been provided by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund as part of the Forces Connect South East Veterans’ Hubs project – a project designed to increase support for Waggon and Horses awarded place in prestigiou­s CAMRA pubs guide A NORTH-east Hampshire pub that has been at the heart of the community for many years has been recognised in a prestigiou­s guide. The Waggon and Horses, in Hartley Wintney, is just one of 11 pubs across Hampshire to be included in Real Heritage Pubs of the South East, published by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA). Described by CAMRA as ‘a pleasant Victorian local on the main street’, the pub acts as the base for Hook Eagle Morris Men’s annual Wassail celebratio­ns, when group members dance to ensure a bumper crop of apples for the coming year. The High Street pub is close to the village common and the elegant Mildmay oak trees, planted by Lady St John Mildmay in response to the call, in 1807, by Admiral Collingwoo­d following the Battle of Trafalgar for landowners to plant oaks to provide timber for naval ships. Also nearby is the village cricket green, home of the oldest cricket club in Hampshire, and the picturesqu­e duck pond. Illustrate­d with more than 200 high-quality photograph­s throughout, the 136-page CAMRA guide also includes a section on the past breweries of Hampshire. Editor and historic pubs expert Geoff Brandwood said: “As a period of great uncertaint­y for the nation’s pubs hopefully comes to a close, it’s a real delight to release the final instalment of the Real Heritage Pub guide series. “This guide highlights the bestpreser­ved pubs across the southeast region, allowing you to experience pub history. It also champions the need to celebrate, understand and protect the genuine pub heritage we have left, and revenue raised from the title goes back into CAMRA campaignin­g.” Real Heritage Pubs of the South East costs £7.99 (£5.99 for CAMRA members) and can be bought from https://shop.camra.
