Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary, near Stratford upon Avon, are staging their first ever open day at Woolly Park Farm (Saddlebow Lane Wolverton, CV37 0HQ) in September … in fact it will be an open weekend. Friends of the Animals have supported this Sanctuary for about 15 years and are, of course, delighted to report this new event for a very traditional Sanctuary.The Sanctuary is holding this event over the weekend of Saturday, September 2 & Sunday, September 3 between 11.30am and 4pm on both days. There will be guided tours  to meet all the 350-plus animals – from the new intake of lambs to old stagers like Bob, Timmy and Gretel the pig and you will also be able to meet Carole, the founder. There will also be a small marquee with (Vegan) food (some donated by those wonderful people at Fry’s) and there will be FARS merchandise available to purchase. In addition there will be a tombola and raffle to boost funds for rescued inhabitants.They would love to see as many supporters as possible, – whether or not you have been before – but as parking facilities at the Sanctuary are a little restricted, a bit of planning for potential visitors is needed.To facilitate a safe and fun tour of the Sanctuary it will be much easier and safer for the tours to be staggered by getting visitor numbers into workable groups. As a result there will be three different visitor sessions each day, at 11.30am, 1pm and 2.30pm. An hour and a half for each session should be enough to see around the sanctuary, have a bite to eat and look at the merchandise!!

If you would like to book in for either day, please contact Mike on 07733-682005 or email him at minorbez@aol.com.

Please bear in mind that conditions underfoot can get tricky if it is a wet weekend, so please come prepared with appropriate footwear. You will, of course, be welcome to take photographs of yourself with the animals.If you can’t attend, but would like to donate either a raffle or tombola prize, or make a monetary donation, then please contact Mike Berry, he will be very happy to hear from you or you can use the PAYPAL button on the right of this page.
