Spring 2020 Magazines OUT NOW!

Hi Friends,
This ‘Fab Friday’ I must tell you that our new spring 2020 magazines are out now! Have you had your copy through the post or seen them in our Visitor Centres yet? 
Don’t worry if you don’t already receive our fab magazines as it’s so easy to sign up… ask a parent or guardian to click on the 'Join up' link at the top right of this page and fill in your details to get your FREE copy or sign up at our Visitor Centres! For those of you aged three to seven, 'Mini Reds' is the magazine for you and those aged eight and over, you will get a copy of 'Young Reds'. 
The theme for these issues is ‘Golden oldies’ – so looking at the daily life and care of my older, lesser known friends. Have you met any of them? We have many ‘Golden oldies’ at our Visitor Centres, you’ll have to read these issues to find out who and where they are! 
As always there’s lots of great pictures of my friends, games and fun facts for you all to enjoy. Also a big thank you to those who have already sent in their drawings and completed colouring pages, they look fantastic and we can’t wait to see more! 
Happy reading!

SEIB Redwings Show 2020

Hey friends,
I’ve got some exciting news for you on this ‘Fab Friday’…the SEIB Redwings Show is back! Yes, you read that right! Details of our fantastic annual horse show are finally here...
With a new date, venue and even more classes for 2020 (including a brand new Fun Dog Show!) this is sure to be a show you do not want to miss. It will be held on Sunday 12th July at Trinity Park, outside Ipswich, Suffolk and we can’t wait to see you there! 
This show will be a great day out for all, whether you are a competitor or a spectator, everyone is welcome! Remember, not only is this your chance to show off your skills and have some fun, but all money raised from the day will go towards helping care for my buddies and I here at Redwings. Isn’t that a nice thought? 
With your parent/guardian, follow this link to our main website for more information, schedules and sign up forms: https://www.redwings.org.uk/news-and-views/seib-redwings-show-2020.
If you want to see the highlights from last year you can find our 2019 photo album on our Facebook page or check out our video on our YouTube channel. 
Catch up with you soon!

Happy Valentine's Day

Hey friends,
It’s Friday so it’s time for another ‘Fab Fridays’ blog! Hooray! This week’s is a special one because it’s Valentine’s Day today. Do you have any plans? I think Wings (my best bud) and I will share a nice meal of hay to celebrate the occasion. 
With so many residents at the Sanctuary, we have lots of lovely couples and best buds. Who’s your favourite duo? (Besides Wings and I, of course!)
We asked our amazing teams for photos and stories of their favourite couples and loads were sent in. Thanks for sharing the love everyone! I’ve added a picture of our #CuteFridayPhoto to this blog. Isn’t it sweet! My friends and I are so lucky to have such wonderful carers <3.  This week we’ve been posting lots of lovely couple’s photos on our social media for you all to enjoy. 
Before I go, remember today marks to start of our February school holidays activities. Check out last week’s blog for more information. 
Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day friends :)
