Pennyhooks Care Farm – Webster Walk 23/7/23

DBS members and donkeys from several regions met up for a Webster Walk at Pennyhooks Care Farm, raising money for the students that the farm supports.  It was a wonderful day, with a gentle walk around the fields, lovely refreshments made by students, and the opportunity to catch up with or meet friends.


By now members will have heard from Claire Harper that they can now receive her Newsletter via their Area Representative by e-mail, rather than by the more expensive postal route, if that is your choice. If by any chance you have not made and notified the choice please set it up now.

We hope that by involving Area Representatives in the distribution we shall bring members more in touch with their own representative. It is important that e-mailed Newsletters are downloaded, printed out and filed in your DBS records for future reference. It is all too easy for e-mails to become lost, if left to linger in an In Box.
