When Peter met Betty

A LITTLE dog called Betty stole the show last week when Councillor Peter Murphy got together for a photoshoot with members of the new consortium of businesses that is taking over Fenland District Council’s pest control, stray dog and kennelling services.

Cllr Murphy is pictured with Mark Elston of Elston Environmental Services, Caroline Trigg of Ravenwood Pet Rescue, and Mark Rotchell of Teejaycey Kennels – but all eyes were on Betty, a stray who turned up at Ms Trigg’s two and a half years ago and has stayed with her ever since.

The three companies will be working together to provide the services. The contract will be under the overall management of Elston Environmental Services.

Cllr Murphy said: “We’re pleased to have signed this important new contract which will bring the three services closer together and help us to provide the most efficient service across the district.”

Anyone who wishes to report a stray dog should call FDC on 01354-654321.

Customers who require pest control services can contact Elston Environmental directly on 0800-0467644 or call FDC on 01354-654321.
