going to the dogs

HOW appealing the Cardigan corgis on this week’s cover look: handsome, sturdy little dogs, robust in health, with thick double coats able to withstand the worst vagaries of the British summer (‘Such smashing little dogs’, page 42). However, turn that statement into a question and the answer is worrying. How appealing are Cardigan corgis to Britain’s dog-loving public? Apparently not at all, according to the quarterly and annual puppy registration figures released by The Kennel Club (KC). The Cardigan Welsh corgi is among the least popular of the 220 breeds the KC recognises and has been for a number of years. In 2018, KC Assured Breeders registered a nanoscopic 147 puppies. These doldrums owe little to the breed’s character or health. Loyal, intelligent, affectionate family dogs, small in size, but reliable eaters…

‘it’s the freakiest show’

IT’S been suggested David Bowie wrote the lyrics to his hit single Life On Mars? on the Croydon Road Recreation Ground bandstand in Beckenham, south-east London. What’s not in doubt is that a frizzy-haired Bowie performed on it at the Woodstock-style Growth Summer Festival 50 years ago this month. The local boy, together with his landlady and sometime lover Mary Finnigan, organised the event, thought to be the first of its kind in Britain, soon after the release of Space Oddity. The festival was intended to raise money to establish a permanent base for his Beckenham Arts Lab project, which started life as a folk club in the nearby Three Tuns pub. Marking the anniversary, Historic England has announced the listing of the traditional iron bandstand at Grade II. A local Friends…

is nature losing its lure?

TODAY’S children are losing touch with Nature at an alarming rate, finds a new study. Some 83% of five to 16 year olds cannot identify a bumblebee or an oak leaf. Stinging nettles may be a problem, should a countryside walk ever tempt, as 51% don’t know what they look like and 65% wouldn’t recognise a blue tit, either. The game of conkers must be dying out because 24% couldn’t pick out a horse-chestnut seed and only 23% know what a robin looks like. Foxes, however, they know (97%) and hedgehogs, too (93%). On the whole, a concerning 34% of 11–16 year olds are simply not interested in Nature, compared with 19% of those aged between five and 10. Some parents blame the prevalence of screen time; the survey, conducted by…
