FERNE Animal Sanctuary is excited about its upcoming Christmas Fayre and Animal Blessing.

The Christmas Fayre is held over two days at the sanctuary, full of festivities with local stall holders featuring an array of hand-crafted goods, fundraising stalls, and fun activities.

Ferne is also hosting a guided tour of the sanctuary and its animals on December 2, including an animal blessing service that lasts around 15 minutes, where people are able to bless their pets in Ferne’s barn surrounded by the animal residents.

There will be hot dogs, mince pies, and mulled wine available for all. Tickets are £5 for an adult and £2 for a child.

The Christmas quiz and late-night shopping is on December 8 at the sanctuary and includes a supper and refreshments from Nina's Cafe.

Tickets are £5 per person with teams of 4 - 6 held at 6pm, and a chance of winning a cash prize along with others.

On this day, Ferne’s pet supplies and gift store will also be open until 8pm.
