Captain John was recently adopted by a family. Here is what they had to say.
"To the wonderful people at SPCA. On Tuesday, Captain John came home with us to his new furever home. Safe to say he has adjusted well and is loving his new life. He has discovered the confines of the kid’s bed.
He is completely calm with three kids and two dogs. Thank you for looking after him until he came to us."
We're more than halfway through our bin rollout, so if you don't have yours already it'll be with you soon!
When your bins arrive, your blue recycling crate for glass will be inside one of the 240L wheelie bins if you chose that size for either rubbish or recycling.
If your neighbours have received bins and you haven't, don't worry. Bins are being delivered in each street according to the combination that people opted for, so you should get yours in another delivery run shortly.
Since the start of the year, we've had more than 1,500 people sign-up to become apprentices. Some of them are re-skilling from one profession into a career they love. With skills shortages in key industries, employers are hiring and offering training through the fees-free apprenticeships programme.
Sign-up with Competenz to find your apprenticeship.
