Wonderful winter fun in Warwickshire
At Redwings Oxhill, we look forward to welcoming you to a season of festive activities to enjoy over the coming months.
Two of our lovely residents, Muesli and Marmite, will be making their first appearance at Your Horse Live, Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th November. If you’re attending, pop along to the Norbrook Rescue Village and meet the charming chaps! Of course, if you miss Muesli and Marmite at the event, they, along with the rest of ‘The Breakfast Club’, will be here at Redwings Oxhill to meet you every day!
Our mascot Red will also be out and about this month, making a special appearance at Pets at Home in Stratford upon Avon on Saturday 29th November from 9.30am to 3.30pm. If you are shopping for your special pet, remember to look out for him!
Throughout November we are hosting daily Walk and Talks; come along and join our tours, starting at midday, and take the opportunity to meet our residents – including our Adoption Stars Wensley, Rumpel, Dylan, Major and the Oxhill Donkeys.
We are also currently running an auction to win an original pastel drawing of our stunning Adoption Star, Major. Come along, meet the fellow himself and bid to take home this unique portrait. The drawing and current bid will be on display in our visitor centre throughout November. The auction will close at 4pm on Sunday 30th November; telephone bids will be accepted on this day only.
Finally, don’t forget to take advantage of our early Christmas shopping offer:
Throughout November, early Christmas shoppers can enjoy a free cup or tea or coffee and a tasty mincemeat slice when you spend just £15 in our gift shop!
