Two fined for failure to update microchip details

poochTwo dog owners have been prosecuted for failing to ensure their dogs microchip details were up to date.

Under The Microchipping of Dogs (England) Regulations 2015, dog owners must have their pet microchipped, and for all details to have the most recent information with contact details for a dog’s keeper.

Charanjit Khera of Bloxoms Close, Braunstone Town, pled guilty under Single Justice Procedure for failing to update the details of her dog’s chip following a 21 day notice. She was fined £146, with a £30 victim surcharge and £85 costs.

Danielle Hawthorne of Packer Avenue, Leicester Forest East, failed to enter a plea and was found guilty under Single Justice Procedure for the same offence. She was fined £220, with a £30 victim surcharge and £85 costs.

Both were prosecuted after being served notice for failure to update their dog’s chip, despite the 21 day period of notice and seven additional days to prove the required action had been taken.

Updating a dog’s microchip details can be easily done over the phone or online and can cost as little as £4.95 depending on the database.

Jon Wells, Group Manager for Regulatory and Leisure Services, said:

“We’re disappointed that we have had to take this action against individuals in the district. Our Environmental Services team are happy to help anyone struggling with the process to ensure their dog can be identified.

“This law has now been in place for nearly a year and it’s very important that people make sure there are complying with the law. We will continue to take this course of action when necessary.”

The Council hosted a microchipping amnesty on Wednesday 06 April for dog owners without a chip or up-to-date details. Trained staff were on hand to chip dogs and update details for free.

Enderby Youth Band Salford success

Well done to the Youth Band today competing at the National Youth Championships in Salford on Sunday 2nd April!

They came away with a Bronze Award as well as the Brian Hicks Award for MD Trevor Hounsome in recognition of his dedication to youth banding!

A post on the band’s facebook page describes it as “an amazing day for all concerned!!”

Enderby Youth Band is a special organisation.

Many local Brass Bands have beginner groups – but very few Bands in the country are able to offer the opportunity for these youngsters to go on and play to a high standard with a Youth Brass Band of national standard.

New members are always welcome and guaranteed a high standard of tuition, along with plenty of fulfillment and fun.

Complete beginners and recent starters can join the Junior Band, while more experienced players (Grade 2-3 upwards can go straight into the Youth Band).

Rehearsals are on Sunday 5:30-8:30pm at the Enderby Village Institute.

Estate agents’ sweet Easter fundraiser

Harrison Murray, Enderby branchAn Enderby estate agent has joined four other Leicestershire estate agency teams who are ‘chocs away’ with a tasty fundraiser for local homelessness project One Roof Leicester.

Harrison Murray Estate Agency (part of The Nottingham) in Enderby has joined the Leicester, Wigston, Syston and Groby offices of the company with raffling chocolate bouquets in-branch to raise cash for the charity.

It’s a sweet starter to a working relationship that, later in the year, will also see Harrison Murray staff visit a couple of One Roof’s premises to help with a gardening project.

Jennie Andrews, senior residential manager at Harrison Murray in Wigston and Syston, said:

“Harrison Murray has long had a reputation for getting involved in positive work in the community and when we heard about One Roof there was an obvious and natural fit – we are extremely proud to link up with them.

“We are getting things underway with the chocolate bouquet raffles, which will run between now and Easter, and we are sure local people will give very generously to such a good cause.

“However, long-term, we are looking for the link-up to truly blossom. Whilst the funds we raise over Easter will be very important to One Roof we want this to be an even more tangible relationship that sees us getting involved in helping them make the difference to homeless people that they do on an ongoing basis, including in the form of volunteering some of our time.”

One Roof manager Salma Ravat added:

“It is fabulous of Harrison Murray to step up and offer this support and we are really proud to be working with such a strong local brand that prides itself on its community work.

We are looking forward to the relationship going from strength to strength and it being a positive boost to our work in helping homeless people in Leicester.”

 
Anyone wanting to buy a raffle ticket for the chocolate bouquet, priced just £1, should visit the Harrison Murray office at 2 King Street, Enderby or one of the other offices listed below.

  • Groby: 11/11a Ratby Road, LE6 0GF
  • Leicester: 7-9 Halford Street, LE1 1JA
  • Syston: 10 High Street, LE7 1GP
  • Wigston: 13 Leicester Road, LE18 1NR
 
Staff from the organisations with chocolate bouquets
