What we do

A brief history of Swindon Branch.

 

There has been a Cats Protection presence in the Swindon area for around 30 years.
In the early days there were "Special Representatives" in areas where there were no groups.
These acted as focal contacts and issued neutering vouchers etc. and Mrs Green was the area's representative in Gloucestershire.

Mrs Green then started the Fairford and Swindon Group and moved to Lydiard Millicent.
The group grew considerably over the years and after 17 years of representing Cats Protection, Mrs Green handed over the reins to Debbie Pearce (nee Radmore) in January 1989.

The group then become known as The Swindon Branch.

The Swindon Branch, in its current form, started in January 1989 with a handful of volunteers. We now have nearly 200 members, 8 fosterers and an active band of fund-raisers.
