Salisbury Reds bus company’s Chatty Bus is in Guildhall Square, Salisbury, between 10am and 3pm, marking World Mental Health Day, on Thursday, October 10.

This time, the company is teaming up with Pets As Therapy to introduce local people and visitors to some loveable canines.

“Dogs are beautiful creatures, and few can resist the opportunity to say ‘hello’ to them,” said Salisbury Reds head of communications, Nikki Honer.

“Pets As Therapy use dogs specifically suited to making people feel good, and we feel they will provide the perfect reason for people to interact when they come to our Chatty Bus this week.”

Pets As Therapy is a national charity set up to enhance health and wellbeing in the community, through the visits of trusted volunteers with their behaviourally assessed animals. The pets visit hospitals, hospices, nursing and care homes, special needs schools, and a variety of other venues across the country.

“We’re delighted volunteer Pauline Haywood will be bringing her two therapy dogs – Elsa and Martha to Guildhall Square on World Mental Health Day,” added Nikki.
