News: Thousands expected to attended charity’s flagship annual Autumn Fayre

Another Lincolnshire Highlights news story…

Bransby Horses is planning what it describes as its biggest Autumn Fair to date.

The Autumn Fair has been a flagship event for the equine rescue charity for more than 40 years and continues to grow in popularity with more than 3,000 people attending in 2018.

It is a great chance for the charity, which rescues and rehabilitates hundreds of horses and donkeys, to meet the public and its supporters.

Families will also find a wide variety of activities on the day including demonstrations, craft stalls, a raffle, falconry, glitter tattoos, a dog show, bouncy castle and a donated goods and tack sale.

 

Bransby Horses is spread across 600 acres of Lincolnshire countryside just a few miles from Lincoln, and visitors are invited to take along a picnic with plenty of areas to choose from to lay down a blanket.

There will also be a barbeque in The Courtyard where you can buy food as well as hot and cold food and drinks available in The Feedroom Café.

Vicky Varney, the events coordinator at Bransby Horses said: “This is one of the most long-standing and significant events on our calendar and we’re already getting prepared for what we believe will be the best yet!

“Everyone is welcome to come along. Events such as this are a really good opportunity to tell people what we do, thank people in person and share some of our stories.”

If you are planning to travel by car there is plenty of parking (suggested donation £5) and Stagecoach will also be providing a free bus service from Lincoln Train Station.

The Autumn Fayre will be held on Sunday, September 29 (11am until 3pm). Admission is free but donations are most welcome. Bransby Horses, Bransby, Lincoln LN1 2PH.

Having celebrated their 50th anniversary last year, the charity has confirmed they now have almost 1,000 equines in their care – more than 430 equines on site and more than 520 which have been rehomed but continue to receive support from the charity.

The charity relies entirely on help and donations from the public. And donations don’t have to just be cash; preloved goods, secondhand tack or time (though volunteering) are hugely valued by the charity.
