'Fairy dog mother' furious over planned '375%' licence fee hike

BBC

Tracy Hill, known as the Fairy Dog Mother, has said a proposed licence fee hike for dog boarders in Berkshire could force many to go “underground”.

The licensed pet sitter and dog behaviourist from Reading told the BBC: "The last three months have not been pleasant for most people, we’ve had no help at all from the council and now they want to put our fees up 375%.

"It’s going to force people underground and to not be licensed to look after your dog.”

The licensing system is run jointly by Wokingham, Bracknell Forest and West Berkshire councils who wanted to raise the cost of a licence from £120 to £570.

All three have now announced they are putting the £450 increase on hold while they carry out a review.

Council branded 'feeble' as pay gap doubles

Campaigners have branded a council's efforts to close the gender pay gap as "feeble" after it emerged the disparity between the wages earned by male and female employees have more than doubled in the last two years.

The 15.2% gap at Wokingham Borough Council is now more than double the national average of 6.8%.

The authority has committed to improving its pay gap by 1% every year for the next three years.

Louise Timlin, from the Women’s Equality Party's local branch, called the plan "a feeble effort" and described the pay gap as "shocking".

Although the gap has increased, Wokingham is still faring better than Bracknell Forest and West Berkshire who have a difference in pay between men and women of 18.2% and 19.5%, respectively.

Neighbouring councils in Reading and Windsor & Maidenhead are below the average at 5% - while Slough's is the lowest in Berkshire at 3.1%.
