Christmas at NCAR 2018
This year Christmas is going to be slightly different and we have decided to change the plan for the Christmas Open Day, mainly due to Parking concerns, issues and stress levels of the animals and staff
So this year we are going to have a Christmas month throughout December.
This year the Christmas Open day is going to be spread over a couple of days throughout December.
So we won’t have the normal very busy Open Day, due to the fact that we literally have limited parking apart from the normal car park due to weather at this time of year, also our normal offsite car parks are out of use, Quarry and Afon Goch are now sold, the farm has a milk delivery so not accessible, our field is out of use as we need it for the horse grazing and can’t depend on the weather at this time of year and the
Llanasa car park out of use as it’s used for pub and church.
So this year we have all decided to try something new so we have are having
4 main days of Christmas in December
Sunday 2nd Dec | Wednesday 5th Dec |Sunday 16th Dec | Wednesday 19th Dec
These will be days will be our Festive NCAR Days. We will have a Raffle, Tombola, Cakes and a few stalls in the marquee next to the cafe but a slightly low key to our normal Christmas market style.
The cafe will be serving Festive baps as normal and we will be doing Christmas meals (pre bookable) throughout December and we will offer Tours of the kennels and catteries but only set hours on these Festive Days , which will be guided tours. All the animals will have their Christmas stockings up waiting patiently for special gifts from you, if you are able to donate. So this will be between 12 – 2pm on each Festive Day.
We hope that these Festive Days will be less stressful for the animals but also the staff too
as it won’t be everyone descending on us on the one day like in previous years.
If this does work we will continue doing this for future events in 2019
and hopefully help the traffic situation and the stress for the animals.
So please feel free to come along to one of our Festive days throughout December. Each day will be the same so if you prefer a quieter experience then pick a Wednesday but if you would like to bring the family then one of Sunday’s will suit you more.
We look forward to seeing you all and enjoy the Festive celebrations at NCAR.
