ABC Animal Sanctuary Harvest Fayre

The ABC Animal Sanctuary in West Chiltington is holding a fun-packed Harvest Fayre on 22nd September. As well as being able to meet the resident animals and those looking for re-homing, visitors will experience a great range of entertainments. Actor and presenter Craig Henderson is the MC and was a friend of the founder Alexandra Bastedo.

A selection of live music will entertain visitors throughout the day including Willie Austen, Bastedo Band, local singer Molly MacKenna and her ukulele Paula Daly with her guitar (one of ABC volunteers) and piano duets from Students of Brenda Mendelssohn.

Other attractions include a super dog show by experienced dog show event producer Mark Bridger-Pescott from Bone Canis with a selection of great classes from Best in Show to Junior Handler and Cutest Puppy.

Children will be kept happy with a variety of entertainment including a treasure hunt, children’s races, lucky dip, face painting by Nicky, groom a pony and lookalikes Captain Marvel and Maverick from Top Gun will also be visiting. In addition David Stride the sanctuary’s farrier will be demonstrating how to shoe a horse.

Two great opportunities to take home a lovely memento of the fair are a horseshoe painting stand and a photograph of the family in ABC’s new ‘Face in the Hole Board’ decorated with bright and colourful animals. All of the events will help raise money for the animals up-keep at the sanctuary.
