  • 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.

    Forgot to say that there is a visit to Friend on May 11th, by London Vegan Meetup anyone can join that group and go with them. Our next visit will be on May 25th. Also anyone can visit the sanctuary as long as you agree a day with them first, just that it makes sense if going by train to go in a group and get the discount for groups of 4 or more.

    We are now going to cancel this date for visiting Friend, 2 of the other 3 due to attend have told me they are OK with this, and one couldn't go anyway. Again I apologise for the error in making this date, which is set automatically, and it would not be right to clash with the World Day for Animals March in Oxford, really that's such a vital one to get as many people on, to emphasise the evils of animal abuse and torture in the testing labs, as Gandhi said, "Vivisection is the blackest of all the black crimes that a man is at present committing against God and his fair creation." If anyone doubts this, all I can say is find out the facts on it!

    As mentioned, this date unfortunately clashes with WDAIL, World Day for Animals in Laboratories which is one of the most important dates in the ar calendar.......a big march, this year in Oxford and a major part of the campaigns against animal testing. Please see for details.
    I attended last year's march in Birmingham and can recommend it to those who haven't been on such marches before. There are also speeches which are usually inspirational and informative. The dates for Friend were set to repeat on here automatically for the last Saturday of each month,this date should have been changed- I apologise for that. But can the people who have said they are going please post on here whether they still want to go to Friend or would prefer to go on the march in Oxford. I am under pressure to cancel or change the date for this just on the principle that we should be encouraging people to go on the march. I'd rather not do this without consulting those who RSVP'd yes for this.

    Who will be going to meet the guys at charing cross?

    This being clashed with WDAIL in Oxford will make its participation lower. Can we move this Friend to one week earlier or later?

    I'd have thought it not a good idea to clash with WDAIL.. just my opinion
