Return of Fun Dog Show to Charity Open Day
Remus Horse Sanctuary is delighted to announce the return of its Fun Dog Show to its popular Open Day this July. Previously on hold due to the Covid restrictions and despite the delay of step four of the Lockdown Roadmap, the Charity will be able to incorporate the fun dog show and children’s entertainer, including an appearance by Mickey Mouse at 3pm!
Members of the public are invited to join the team and animals at Remus when it opens its gates at 1pm on Sunday 4 July 2021. However, to minimise physical contact and maintain social distancing, tickets must be pre-booked and there will be waitress service within the refreshment area.
Admission will be charged at £5 per adult and £2 for children. Tickets can be purchased securely online at: www.remussanctuary.org/events/open-day-at-the-sanctuary-july, or via the telephone on: 01277 356191. The Fun Dog Show will commence at 2pm, entrants must pre-pre-book and arrive no later than 1.30pm. Entry costs £2 per class. A list of the classes can be found on the charity website.
Parking is available on-site and disabled parking is available near to the yard. There is also a wheelchair accessible toilet. Dogs are welcome on a lead.
Sue Burton, founder of the Sanctuary said, “We are absolutely delighted to be able to incorporate our fun dog show into our July Open Day! That said, we will be continuing to take a cautious approach with limited numbers and asking visitors to maintain social distancing. We still want our visitors and the Remus team to feel safe and to be safe.”
In line with current government guidelines, visitors will be asked to provide contact details for members in their party over the age of 16, or to scan the NHS QR Code using the NHS Covid-19 App. QR posters will be displayed at the main entrance. Contact details will be held for 21 days to assist the government’s Track & Trace system.
Visitors will be asked to keep two metres apart from others and encouraged to wash their hands or use hand sanitiser regularly throughout the afternoon.
Ms Burton added, “We experienced no problems at our May and June events and everyone who came along had a great time out in the open in the beautiful Essex countryside and enjoyed meeting the animals while feeling Covid safe. We sincerely hope that our stringent measures will mean we can continue to open safely throughout the summer.”
Further information on the fun dog show will be available on the website at www.remussanctuary.org and the charity’s Facebook page.
