Community Action Day @ Hope Pastures
Apr 29 @ 10:00 am – 2:30 pm

Maintaining the sanctuary is like painting the Forth Road Bridge – it never stops! We’re a really small team who have to concentrate on looking after the ponies, so we always need volunteers to help us with the regular maintenance jobs around the sanctuary, such as painting, fence repair, clearing and gardening.

On the last Saturday of each month we get a team together and tackle some of our major jobs. We even ply you with refreshments. 10am-2:30pm (or as long as you can manage!)
