Summer festival for Raystede Animal Welfare Centre

THE Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare in Ringmer is looking forward to its biggest event of the year.

The annual Summer Festival will take place on Sunday June 24, 10am-5pm, and is set to be the biggest ever.

As well as lots of craft stalls, there will be a children’s fun fair, parade of Raystede’s horses, ponies and donkeys and a Fun Dog Show with several classes, including one for ex-Raystede dogs. There will be food and refreshments, including a beer tent, and live music will be playing throughout the day.

Chief Executive Nigel Mason said, “This year Raystede celebrates its Diamond Jubilee and we are making the Summer Festival bigger and better than ever before to celebrate our 60 years of caring for animals.”

Entrance to the event is £5 per car, which will include a goodie bag. Anyone wishing to take part in the Fun Dog Show can arrive from 9am to register, with classes costing £1 to enter.
