2014 Christmas Fayre

These wonderful animals, who have given so much cannot speak for themselves but on their behalf we would like to thank the hundreds of visitors who attended our annual Christmas Fair at La Grange yesterday 7th December 2014.

The event raised just over 2000 Euros which will help to keep the horses and their friends through the coming winter months. 

A small amount from Santa's Grotto and Children's Games will be donated to the local schools of Villars and Quinsac

We would like to thank the volunteers that worked tirelessly before the event and on the day, without you we could not do all things that we do to raise the much need funds, you all deserve a massive pat on the back and probably a huge rest. 

A special Thank You to Papa Noel who arrived by carriage from the North Pole via the car park of St Pancrace. His carriage was driven by Paula Liddon and pulled by her wonderful horse Indie who was rescued from a meat farm.

We must mention the contribution made by our twenty one stall holders who were all in the Christmas Spirit, their beautiful ware many of them hand crafted made a fantastic display in our Marche de Noel Marquee. We are especially thankful for the prizes they donated to the Tombola and the forth coming Auction on our January Comedy Night

We are so pleased that the weather was dry but cold with the occasional glimpse of sunshine, this meant that people were able to visit and enjoy their day with us. Plenty of Pork Baguettes with apple sauce and stuffing were consumed along with 40 litres of Mulled Wine with Mince Pies or Homemade Cake.

The Children all enjoyed a visit from Father Christmas and they all got a chance to visit him in his very authentic Grotto where they received a present. 

We were very honoured to have some wonderful entertainment for the day which started off with Sandy Bailey welcoming Father Christmas up the drive and then followed on with some jolly Christmas songs. After lunch we were entertained by the wonderful Amal'Gamme French Choir which was organised by Brenda Henderson. 

There was lots to enjoy and pictures of the day can be found in our Gallery

We also have adoption packs for some of our animals which make good Christmas and birthday presents - priced at 15 euros if you live in France 20 euros if you want it sent elsewhere.  click here to see more information


This week we have had a visit from Gareth our Bare Food Farrier.  Lewis, Johnny, Copperfield and Bella all received his special knowledge and expertise.  Johnny really benefits from his care as he has lots of problems with his feet and legs but always feels so much more comfortable after his pedicure!.


Thank you to all those that came to our Curry and Quiz Night last Friday (November 7th), it was a wonderful night filled with mind boggling questions, laughter and spicy curry. We raised on the evening 800 Euros which is to go towards the horses Dentist bill. Thank you again and we are now planning the next Quiz Night for the New Year.
