A summer to remember with Redwings
Aylsham summer activities still available to enjoy this weekend!
This Friday 29th August to Monday 1st September we’re inviting children over five years old to join in our hands-on grooming sessions. So whether budding horse owners or animal enthusiasts, our grooming demonstrations allow children to get up close and cuddly with our residents, as well as learn all about the importance of maintaining a healthy coat and skin. Places are limited to six children per session and tickets are available for a £3 donation at the visitor centre on the day.
We also have an array of walk and talk tours with our Redwings team where you can learn about and meet all of our very special residents!
For more information about activities at Redwings Aylsham, please enquire at the centre or call 0870 040 0033.
