At last the warmer days have arrived and time to get out in the fresh air at Friends!
Friend is a vegan run Farmed animal sanctuary:

The is organising this very popular meetup 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.
Bring wellies, a change of trousers/top and a snack or potluck to share. Lifts to and from Paddock Wood Station are available. We will be helping with the mucking out, fence and other maintenance.  We are also working with Marion and Mark to get the hen/duck/turkey sheds and a project to protect and plant some new trees for british natural woodland: ash, elm, oak, fruit trees etc. if you can donate a small tree in a pot please bring it with you!.

These visits are always enjoyable and a chance to meet like-minded people and interact with many animals that have been rescued from the farmed animal industry (normally including feeding them).......we usually leave around 5pm but people can leave earlier if they want of course.

Thank you dear friends we look forward to seeing you!

    It's looking less likely that I'll be able to make it so I've changed my reply to No - hope it's okay if I just turn up at the station if I find I can make it. If not, have a great day. Thanks, H xx

    Hello my dear friends of the animals!!!! - I look forward to seeing you all on Saturday - please remember to arrive as promptly as you can, with your change for the fare. We missed the train last time for a last minute turn up - we have group tickets to sort etc - so will need to buy our tickets by 9.30 to allow 10 mins to get to the train!....thank u - I will update any info If you post ur comments. We will be helping possibly with a new duck pond project this week but be prepared to muck in with any necessary chores!

    thank you on behalf of Friend Farmed Animal Sanctuary.
