VOLUNTEER DAY AT FRIEND FARMED ANIMAL SANCTUARY

Meet at Charing Cross station at 9.15 - by the ticket office. Please bring £5 note and some pound coins for the fare - or drive down.  For a group of 4 or more there is a 50% discount fare.

Bring wellies, a change of trousers/top and a snack or potluck to share. Lifts to and from Paddock Wood Station are available.

These visits are always enjoyable: usually we help with outdoor maintenance and other mini projects around the sanctuary.  Its also  chance to meet like-minded people and interact with many rescued farmed animals (normally including feeding them).......we usually leave around 5pm but people can leave earlier if they want of course.

 

Thank you dear friends.

    Can somebody provide directions from charing cross station?

    • Natalie

      You want to get a train that's stopping at paddock wood station.

    • Natalie

      Better instructions that were posted by cafenoir: you will need to get the 9:38am train from charing cross station to paddock wood. when you are on the train please give mark eaton a call to let him know when you will arrive, (it takes 45mins), he will pick you up in the car park on the same platform that you arrive, the number is[masked]

    Heya. I'm unable to attend now :-( Hopefully next time! Hope you all have a lovely day. Give the animals a snuggle from me.

    Don't forget your wellies!! And snacks...and best to take gardening gloves or similar but that's not vital. Rain's due to ease off soon and most of the day will be dry they say. I checked the Southeastern train website and it looks OK for this journey, e.g. no engineering works today. I hope to be there, and I'll be driving up from Sussex as usual so look forward to meeting you at Friend.
