A fantastic day was had by all!

Well, I have to say it takes something to prise John Thorpe away from a car boot sale .... but here he was accompanying us on our trip to support Knoxwood's Open Day earlier today.


I have to admit; I've never seen the place so busy! The lower part of the Watermeadow Reserve lent itself to an impromptu car park, having only been mown to provide winter food and bedding a few days earlier. There was even a queue to get through the entrance - wonderful to see such welcome support flooding in.


The photo is of John trying out the coconut shy; I would have fared no better, so was happy to stay behind the camera!


I am sure Knoxwood will fill us in at a later date with the full amount raised; but for tonight I'm sure they will be glad when we've all gone home, and both all the birds, animals and staff can finally put their feet up.


A huge Thank You to you all for your support of this event.
