cat.jpgCambridge MP, Daniel Zeichner, is encouraging local pet owners to get their animals microchipped following a visit to the Blue Cross rehoming centre in Cambridge today.

The Blue Cross rehoming centre on Garlic Row has helped over 270 cats and kittens so far this year. 65 per cent of these were not microchipped, making it almost impossible for the charity to reunite them with their owners. 

During his visit, the Labour MP for Cambridge met some of the charity’s feline residents looking for loving new homes, including Swift, who arrived as a stray. Because he did not have a microchip, Blue Cross could not find his family.

Blue Cross microchips all of the pets it rehomes and is also reminding people to keep their contact details up-to-date should they move house or change phone numbers.

To help encourage local pet owners to get their cats and dogs microchipped, Blue Cross offers free microchipping days at its rehoming centre which is open to all Cambridge residents. 

Daniel Zeichner said: “I really enjoyed the visit, and in particular meeting Swift who I home finds a purr-fect new home soon. As a nation of animal lovers, we all want a quick and successful reunion should our pets go missing but sadly without a microchip you run the risk of never seeing your pet again if they get lost. That's why I'm delighted to help spread the word to Cambridge pet owners about Blue Cross's free microchipping service."

Daniel Zeichner MP has met Cambridge campaigners who are angry that the Government has given the green light for pesticides, which they say harm bees, to be used on 74,000 acres of crops.

The neonicotinoids, were part of an EU ban in 2013, when EU officials warned the chemicals could pose a 'high acute risk' to bees by changing their behaviour.

The Labour MP says campaigners have swarmed to voice their fury and he has received over 250 letters on the subject including from Dr Chris Forman, who researches biomimetic sustainability and is a local organiser of a bee petition.

MP Daniel Zeichner joined Cambridge youngsters making and then racing dragons on Jack Warren Green as part of the free Summerdaze programme organised and delivered by ChYpPS (The Children and Young People’s Participation Service).

Mr Zeichner made his own dragon at the “Scrap Dragon Derby” and found out more about the Cambridge Community Scrapstore where all the materials to make the dragons come from. With some hard graft and imagination everyone transformed card and paper, fabric and textiles, netting and rope, and even old buggies, suitcases and tyres into fantastical beasts.

Hiroshama.jpgOn the 70th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, Daniel Zeichner MP has called for the horrors of the event never to be repeated.

The first use of an atomic bomb in war took place on August 6 1945 when US air forces dropped a bomb on Hiroshima, which killed up to 180,000 people and destroyed 13 square kilometres of the city. A further bomb was dropped on the city of Nagasaki three days later and killed between 50,000 and 100,000 people.

Commenting on the decision by Health regulator Monitor to investigate financial problems at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge MP Daniel Zeichner says that many of the issues have been caused by policy mistakes made by the Government.

He says they must take their share of the responsibility and work with the hospital to tackle the underlying problems: "It is no good just putting Addenbrookes on the naughty step, when we all know there are deep-seated issues across the health and care system which have been made worse by poor Government decisions.

Staff and managers are working their socks off at Addenbrookes to keep services running, but are facing enormous pressures not of their making. Cuts to local councils mean too many frail elderly people staying too long in hospital, while cuts to nurse training has made recruitment in a high-cost area near impossible. Add in the Government's refusal to pay staff what they were promised, which has further damaged morale, and the massively expensive reorganisation of services caused by the Health and Social Care Act, it is no surprise that there are problems.
