It's summertime!

Hey friends, Red here.
 
Can you believe it is summertime already? Well the weather can’t make up its mind whether it’s rain or shine but that doesn’t matter as I’ve been having so much fun! My friends have started their birthday celebrations and there’s still many more to go…I love a good party! Have you been to celebrate with my pals yet? 
 
We also have the start of the summer holidays for my buddies in Scotland - they can’t wait to see you! The Mountains team have got lots of great activities planned, you don’t want to miss out. Activities start on Friday 26th June all the way through to Monday 2nd September! Wow that’s over 3 months of summer fun...

Also I hear my friends are warming up to help you horsey heroes with Summer Club again! They had so much fun last year I can’t wait to hear what they get up to with you this year. Summer Club kicks off with the Mini Vets session starting on Friday 5th July. Remember to take part you need a parent or guardian to book in advance for you and sessions cost £3. Here’s the link for more information: https://www.redwings.org.uk/news-and-views/summer-club-2019
 
Hope you’re all having a great start to summer too!

Easter Fun!

The Easter holidays are well under way and I hope you’ve been having lots of fun – I know I have been! If you’re looking for more great days out pop over to your local Redwings Visitor Centre to enjoy a walk around, say hello to my four-legged friends and take part in the ‘We Love Donkeys’ themed activities. It’s completely FREE to enter and we know you’ll have an EGG-cellent time!! (See what I did there?! Hehe!)
 
 

 
 
 
Also this Easter break we have kindly been invited to Countrytastic 2019 at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern, Worcestershire on Thursday 18th April 2019. Their theme this year is ‘horses and ponies’ so we were thrilled that they thought of us. It’s our first time going so we’re all very excited!
 
If you’re going too you’ll have to come and say hello to the lovely Redwings staff and you never know you might see me there too! We will be in the marquee with the ‘Ask the Farmer Classroom’, stand number 78. Meet our amazing team from our Oxhill Visitor Centre and Head Office. Ask them about your favourite residents, play with our interactive games, relax in our colouring area and learn about various job roles at Redwings with our ‘Summer Club Roadshow’ activities at various times of the day.
 
Have a great Easter!
 
Love Red x

Hey everyone, it’s your buddy Red!
 
I can’t believe it’s nearly Christmas, I’m so excited! I hope Santa leaves some carrots in my stocking, I have been good this year! 
 
As the year is drawing to a close I just want to say a big thank you from myself and my friends, here at Redwings. As always, we are very grateful for all your support, so thank you for continuing to help ensure my buddies receive the care they need here at the Sanctuary.
