Save the Sanctuary Update

Following mediation in March 2012, when it was agreed that the Sanctuary would purchase Manor Orchard Farm, a first payment towards the purchase was due on October 14th 2013. An interest free loan had been promised by a local trust which unfortunately did not become available when it was needed at this time and has not materialised since. Our solicitors had been in touch with the trust on many occasions both before and since this date, but it is still not known to either them or us why this promised loan was not made available. With help from supporters, the Trustees and Joanna Lumley, our patron, we got together the amount of the first payment, albeit a few weeks late and made the offer to the owner of the farm. However, it was refused, the case went back to court and an eviction order was granted. The Sanctuary appealed but our appeal was refused. We have an eviction date for the 21st July. Our vet, who has been caring for our animals and birds for many years has provided us with a three page letter detailing why even attempting to move most of the animals here would not only cause them great stress, which may lead to their death, but in some cases would contravene Welfare and Travel regulations. The owner and her legal team will be made aware of the health status of our animals and birds with a copy of the vet’s letter.

The owner of the farm is a trustee of an animal sanctuary and was recently awarded a prestigious award for services to animal welfare. We hope that compassion will save the day and we will be allowed to buy the farm. We can provide the sum for the initial deposit for the farm and we have offered to pay a commercial rent until the final payment is made. Fundraising to buy the farm is on going.

Even though the eviction date is the 21st July nothing will happen to our animals and birds on that date. We and our legal team shall continue to oppose the eviction and negotiate to purchase the farm so that we can continue to provide the animals and birds here, that we have the privilege to care for, with a safe and secure home. So that the Farm Animal Sanctuary and all it has stood for for 25 years, all it stands for today and all it will stand for in the future will continue.

“Whoever believes that farm animals can be raised and slaughtered humanely should be here to listen to the constant bleating’s of our neighbour’s ewes. Their lambs have just been rounded up and taken to the slaughterhouse. The ewes have been frantically searching the fields looking for them for days. The lambs will bleat for the whole of the journey, their first, and what will be their last. They will get over it one way or the other, they don’t have a choice.” Janet Taylor
