Enjoy a Cream Tea Fit for a Queen
Celebrate the Jubilee with Remus Horse Sanctuary and a Cream Tea on Sunday 5 June.
Remus Horse Sanctuary has pledged its support for The Big Jubilee Lunch, which will be bringing the Platinum Jubilee celebrations into the heart of every community this June. The Sanctuary will be bedecked with bunting on Sunday 5 June in celebration of HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee for a special celebratory Open Day.
In traditional street party-style, a sit-down Cream Tea will be served at 2.30pm, and a special commemorative tree will be planted as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy.
During the afternoon, visitors can meet the 200+ rescued and rehabilitated horses, ponies and donkeys, learn more about the Sanctuary and enjoy a singalong with guest band Midnite Blu. Whilst children can enjoy face-painting, up close magic and a very special guest – Minnie Mouse will be making an appearance.
The Cream Tea will consist of two plain scones, butter, jam and clotted cream and will be served with a choice of tea or coffee. The Cream Tea is £12 per person including entry. Entry only tickets are £5 for adults and £3 for children.
In addition to the Cream Tea, a range of delicious refreshments will also be available and there will be lots of stalls including a tombola and raffle.
Gates open at 1pm and close at 5pm. Parking is available on-site with disabled access, and dogs are very welcome on a lead. Admission will be charged at just £5 per adult and £3 for children. Advance online booking is recommended via the charity’s website.
The Sanctuary provides rehabilitation and care for around 200 animals, including horses, ponies, donkeys, goats, sheep and cats. The Open Days are a vital source of fundraising for the charity which, due to its location on greenbelt land, can only open to the public for a limited number of days each year.
Sue Burton, Founder of the Charity says, “We’re delighted to be supporting The Big Jubilee Lunch this year and hope to see many people and supporters from around Essex and beyond having fun, reconnecting and celebrating the things they care about this summer!”
