Have a Wonderful Day at Remus Horse Sanctuary
Visitors to the Remus Horse Sanctuary Open Day on Sunday 5 June will be able to meet special guests, Alice in Wonderland and The Mad Hatter – visiting for afternoon tea and photographs. The Charity will also be hosting a Teddy Bear Clinic. Visitors are invited to bring along their teddy bears for a post-hibernation check with a Remus nurse. Once Teddy has been checked out, each one with a clean bill of health will receive a certificate. Entry to the event will be just £4 for adults and £2 for children and will take place from 1pm to 5pm at the Sanctuary near Ingatestone.
The Sanctuary was unable to open its gates to the public earlier in May due to wet fields where visitors would park. So this June date will, in effect, be the first Open Day of the 2016 Season.
The Sanctuary offers entertainment for the whole family and, in addition to Alice and the Mad Hatter, there will be competitions and games, music from local band Midnite Blu, delicious refreshments including sandwiches (including gluten free) and homemade cakes, many stalls and a raffle. Parking is available on-site, with disabled access and dogs are welcome on a lead.
Remus Horse Sanctuary provides rehabilitation and care for over 200 animals, including horses, ponies, donkeys, cows, goats, sheep and cats. The Open Days are a vital source of fundraising for the charity that, due to its location on greenbelt land, can only open to the public for a limited number of days each year.
Founder of the Sanctuary, Sue Burton, says, “Because we were unable to open in May, due to the weather, this will be our first public event of the season and its always special. We’re really looking forward to welcoming Alice in Wonderland and the Mad Hatter – the kids are going to love them – and our Teddy Bear Clinic is sure to be a success!”
