Animal sanctuary holding its spring fair this weekend

The Lord Whiskey Animal Sanctuary in Stelling Minnis is holding its boot sale and spring fair on Saturday.

Money raised on the day will help the charity look after all sorts of animals which have been abandoned or let loose to fend for themselves.

Among its most recent arrivals is a Pomerian puppy left in a cage in a wooded area which would have died had it not been found.

Meanwhile, a white lurcher called Willamina was simply tied to a fence at the sanctuary and left for volunteers to discover.

It has also taken in seven rabbits and a litter of nine babies who were found cowering in a corner on the Downs at Dover. They are now being nursed back to health.

Froojamaflip and Fred will be at Lord Whiskey

The sanctuary is urging people to come along to the fair to support its work so that it” can continue caring for animals in need long into the future”.

The boot fair starts opens at 8am on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the entertainment begins at noon. Among the performers will be Froojamaflip and Fred, a highly unusual duo whose act will produce a lot of laughs and a fair few surprises.

The East Kent Piping Society and the Hawkinge Flyers will also be performing for visitors.

Other attractions will include sheep shearing, classic cars, tombola, face-painting, hot and cold food and a bouncy castle.
