Reporting Back - Annette Brooke MP - April 2014

"First, I must report very exciting news about pupils from Broadstone Middle School. From 700 teams, the under thirteen girls' football team reached the League Final and played at Wembley on Sunday, 30th March. Even better news, they won one goal to nil.

Even in mild cases, the need for isolation (due to being infectious and the need to prevent infecting other dogs) can hinder normal exercise, routine and socialisation.
