Fabulous working day at Hugletts Animal Sanctuary!!

Hugletts Animal Sanctuary (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Hugletts-Wood-Farm-Animal-Sanctuary/211947600388) are planning to remove a pile of soil and rocks and they will need strong people to help.

 

------------------------------------------

This is a VEGAN Jain/Hari Krishna run sanctuary specialising in beautiful cows and bulls - but have lots of other animals as well.... :) Please bring water, a vegan friendly snack box to share - or your own snack. Lifts will be arranged but I will need to know the numbers in advance.

I will go by car directly to the sanctuary but I believe that there will be some people going by train.

There is a direct train from London to Robertsbridge (which I believe to be the closest station to the sanctuary). Train will be leaving London Charing Cross [CHX] from Platform 6 at 09:15 and arriving to Robertsbridge [RBR] to Platform 2 at 10:35. Journey time 1h 20m (www.nationalrail.co.uk). I got the return ticket price of £23.70.

It would be worth for few people to travel together. If I remember correctly there are discounted tickets for 3 and more people travelling together.

If you have any question please call me at[masked].

----------------------------------

Driving directions from B2096

----------------------------------

Turn right from B2096 into Rookery Ln

 

 

 

 

 

 

After about[masked] m turn left (probably the first left).

Go straight until you get to the road in Y shape (about[masked] m) where you have to turn right.

Carry on straight for about 200 m until you get to another Y junction on the picture below.

The last turn right, just before the sanctuary (10 m from the gate)

I hope google map is correct because that's where I got the instructions from :) I can recognise the entrance so this must be correct :)

    Wow did only two attend? I cannot believe so many dropped out, I know some of us had good reasons we had to drop out but what about the others who had signed up?? I thought at least 4 or 5 were expected, what a shame! It is not as if ppl did not have enough notice!

      Lesley,
      Wenda does not want to do it this year, she said it will need to be done next year.
      Regarding other members of London Vegan Meet up, we all attend only the events which appeal to us. If we start judging people why they don't come nobody will enjoy meet ups any more.
      Think about the fact how many meet ups were posted here which you or I didn't attend? One of this over 2000 people could think about you the same in those occasions. I don't think this would be nice for anyone.

      Let's enjoy the excellent experiences we are having at this meet up.

      It is really their loss if they do not want to come though! Of course I do not expect everyone will want to do a workday, I was just surprised at the low level interest when compared to social events that is all! Out of 2,000 I would expect I suppose at least 1% or 2% to be interested in any particular event. I also think a lot of ppl join meetups and then do not look what is happening on the group!
      I really hope to make it next year. I am glad things are not too desperate at Hugletts.

    Sadly my back is still in a bad way, so I won't be able to attend this time. Sincere apologies.

      Hope so too Beata. Thanks Lesley, I hope so

      Get well soon Martin, aren't we all a bunch of decrepit old crocks these days??

    #we forgot about this! I thought I had RSVP'd in error but then remembered this was re-scheduled! Brian can still join you.
    Beata, do you want him to come to yours for the lift?

    1 · September 22, 2013

    • Amrit

      OMG! Aaliyah did say something about her hand band thing and I said that it must be in her rucksack when we got back that day-please do bring it! :) What time will Brian need to be ready for?

      September 23, 2013

    • Beata

      Amrit, we will need to leave about 9 o'clock as it's almost 2h journey

    As much as I would love to attend this fab event, I hate to say that it clashes with volunteers' workshop of Animal Welfare Party being held on the same day. Since I am volunteering for AWP stall at the VegFest, it's imperative that I attend this workshop.My sincere apologies Beata...I wish there was a way out :(

      don't worry Ranjan "a must" is "a must" :)

    I am really sorry, I have had a recent medical problem with a tendon and ligament of my left thumb, it is called trigger thumb or stenosing tenosynovitis is the medical name. It means either not being able to bend my thumb or when it is possible to bend it a little, causes it to be painful at times and "click" between two positions. I have had an injection from the doctor but still not sure if it has worked and might need a minor operation if it has not been fully effective. I have to wait a few more days before I will know if the treatment is a success or if an operation will be needed to release the ligament and tendon, but I will have to pull out of this workday as I do not think it would be wise now to do something involving hard work with my hands which could make things worse. I am really upset about this and hope to be able to help another time. For most events for AR I would not cancel just for the sake of a bad thumb but in this case I will have to due to the work involved.

      I just notice you also replied as a yes for Richard's Kingston event, or is that because Ranga and Lili are going to that one perhaps? I am now a maybe for that event.

      September 17, 2013

    • Beata

      I probably did it before the data was added. I have to change it. Thanks for letting me know

    I bumped into a lady the other day who has rescued three donkeys and needs as much help as she can get in giving them and others a good home. You can get more info on this by checking out LUCKY HORSESHOES SANCTUARY. SHE is in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire. I'm not sure of the exact details but she has paving slabs and needs them laying before winter sets in so the donkeys wont have to stand in mud when they go outside. Just wondering whether any of you guys could join me in making a date to help her out.

    1 · September 16, 2013

    • Beata

      Hi George, please let me know when you would like to go and if it's a weekend I will try my best to join you

      September 17, 2013

  • Lesley D.

    It looks like the other event I was going to has been postponed so I should be able to come to this after all

    August 13, 2013

  • Lesley D.

    Now with the new date please remember to change your reply if you cannot make it.. but hopefully I am the only one who cannot!

    1 · July 24, 2013

  • Amrit

    Brian would like to join you if he can get a lift. Thanks

    2 · July 4, 2013

    • Lesley D.

      What time should I be at Hatton Cross for a lift from you Beata?

      1 · July 16, 2013

    • Beata

      Lesley, if you want to come to Hatton Cross please be there about 8.50, if Hounslow West is better please be there about 9.00 thanks

    Dear Friends of the Animals - please give this event to Hugletts your full support. :) xx

    1 · July 6, 2013

    • Jane A

      Hello Beata yes please change it that would be fine :)

      July 15, 2013

    • Beata

      Jane, I left the title updated as you requested but I had to delete the part that there will be other jobs if someone can not lift anything because Wenda confirmed that the only job foreseen for that day is concrete floor so indeed not an easy task

      July 16, 2013

  • George E.

    Hi Beata,
    George Elliott here. I'm coming from Hertfordshire by car around the M25 and then down the A21 and A265 OR A267 and A265. Don't have SAT NAV but am confident of finding it. Not too proud to accept advice though if you think it would help.

    1 · July 10, 2013

    • Beata

      and the sanctuary will be about 200 m from there

      July 11, 2013

    • Beata

      Please see pictures above

      July 11, 2013

  • Lesley D.

    Hello George Elliott, do you know what your plans are for getting to Hugletts and pls let us know if we can help?

    July 7, 2013

  • Jane A

    Dear Beata - I was asked to host this event - and it was not supposed to be advertised until after the Friend visit...........

    1 · July 4, 2013

    • Beata

      Jane, I sent you an e-mail :)

      1 · July 5, 2013

    • Beata
