Celebrate with The Gangsters
On Sunday 27th July, these cheeky Adoption stars want you to be a member of their gang and join them at their birthday party at the Aylsham Visitor Centre!
Entry is free and everyone is welcome, so bring along your family and friends to this special day filled with fun and games.
Kicking off festivities will be a mighty grooming session for the six miniature Shetlands at 11am, and you’re very welcome to come along and watch. And, as if six ponies wasn’t enough, at 12pm our mascots Red and Wings will make an appearance before the special birthday parade at 1pm.
Having worked up an appetite during the parade, our loveable Gangsters will then be treated to a delicious birthday cake made from special pony-ingredients. A fact-filled “Walk and Talk” tour is available to party guests, as well as a quiz trail around the centre all about Reggie, Ronnie and their Gangster pals. Don’t forget to collect your quiz sheet from the Visitor Centre for your chance to win a prize!
If you haven’t already adopted The Gangsters, you are still welcome to come along to their party! Also, why not take a look at one of our adoption packs? The Redwings Adoption Club is a fun way to support and be part of our charity, and an adoption makes a great gift – indeed, with The Gangsters, your adoption includes all six!
If you’re unable to attend the birthday party, but would like to donate some yummy treats for these cheeky chappies to enjoy on their special day follow this link to find out more.
For more information about visiting us, telephone 0870 040 0033 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you to see you at the party!
Our paddock walks are now open! We hope you enjoy exploring our beautiful surroundings.
