"Due to the extreme wet weather conditions and the grim long-range forecast, we are regrettably having to cancel our Open Days both at West Runton and for 20th May at Frettenham because much of the visitors' area is water-logged and inaccessible.
We hope to resume our Open Days at our Shire Horse Sanctuary, West Runton on Sunday 3rd June and at Frettenham on Sunday 17th June when we hope the weather will have returned to normal. We are sorry for any disappointment caused to our supporters for these unavoidable measures. We look forward to welcoming our visitors back in June, but please check our website or telephone us on 01603 736200 for an update before travelling."
Open days amongst other things help gain useful funds and donations to charities such as Hillside. You can still help by visiting online, donating and or buying a few cards or the like. The email also carried a brief report on Sasha the horse:
"Sasha is just one of several horses we have recently taken in to save them from being slaughtered. Sasha had been used as a carriage horse to give holidaymakers cart rides along Great Yarmouth seafront.
You may be interested to know we have lots of new gift ideas and greeting cards which you may consider purchasing to help feed and care for our rescued animals."
