Click image to enlarge

Woofs & Wellies

Due to popular demand, Rowans Hospice has organised a Spring Woofs & Wellies event on 21 May at Stansted Park, supported by event sponsors, Sparkle Paws.


Approximately 300 dogs dressed up in their festive costumes to take part in Woofs & Wellies in November, raising over £12,000. This May, there is no particular theme so dogs can wear whatever they like. They might like to visit Sparkle Paws in Waterlooville in advance of the walk so they look their best.


The grounds around Stansted House are really beautiful and are perfect for dog walking. There is a choice of two routes; either a 6k or a shorter 3k for those with shorter legs!

It’s £5 to register a dog to take part and as many human companions as you like can walk for free. All canines receive a special doggy medal and goodies at the finish.

For further information please contact Gemma 02392 237142, fundraising@rowanshospice.co.uk or visit our web page http://www.rowanshospice.co.uk/woofs

Received a New Assignment Order?


Did you know that HIVE Information Sheets are available for every geographical Assignment area in the UK, Germany, Cyprus and Brunei?

Our network of HIVE Information Support Officers (HISOs) can offer wide ranging local information to make your move that little bit less stressful.

 What is HIVE?

The HIVE is an information network available to all members of the Service community. It serves both married and single personnel, together with their families, dependants and civilians employed by the Services.

Worldwide, the HIVE information centres offer an extensive range of information on relocation, local unit and civilian facilities, places of interest, schools and further education, housing, healthcare facilities, employment and training opportunities.

We network worldwide, sourcing national and local information as needed. Information on relocations is one of our key areas of information support and is available either in advance or on arrival at the receiving unit. Information on the ways to communicate with those serving away on operational deployments is also available through our HIVE information centres.

HIVE information support officers are not trained in welfare counselling. We are however able to advise referral to those professional agencies best suited to the individual’s circumstances. All HIVE staff are bound to a code of confidentiality.

We are proud that our service is recognised and valued across the armed forces for its professional approach, initiative and commitment to you, the Service community.
