An Easter Letter from Gwen 2019

Dear All,

What a year so far!

With the year starting badly having a very annoying unpleasant dose of the flu, 28 tablets a day feeling my end is nigh, I am back to tell the story and use the opportunity to say how very lucky Bunny Burrows is to have such an amazing team of volunteers, absolute troopers. Goodness knows what would have happened without them!

Spring certainly arrived here 2 weeks ago when all 10 of the hibernating tortoises woke at once. After 5 months of being asleep they have all come out fighting fit. Nights are too cold so they are unable to go outside yet. They are driving me mad chomping around the tortoise tables under the heat lamps eating like food has gone out of fashion. Maybe they are worried about Brexit and the food supply! Lucky for them they have slept for 5 months.

Easter is great for me to see all the rabbit themed goodies for sale. The downside is the amount of these wonderful creatures that will be purchased and given up in such a short time. The past few weeks have been unbearable with the amount of emails and phone calls from the public wanting to give these adorable animals away. I have to say the amount increases each year and this is before the Easter shopping …

We are saddened not to have had the annual Hot X Bunny Day this year – it would have been our 18th!!! This was no fault of ours, rather Richmond Town Hall and Council let us down. Never mind! No rest for the wicked though as we are spending time at Pets @ Home Catterick Garrison fund raising with tombola and talking to the public about the pleasures and pitfalls of Bunny parenting.

THE invitation came through the letter box last week – The Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace, 21st May. I am practicing my curtsy but still shopping to find an outfit. The invitation says one can wear uniform or national dress but the gang here say that wouldn’t mean my Bunny Burrows tops or my fleece lounge suits. Hey Ho! Will keep on looking …

Thank you to one and all that continue to support Bunny Burrows – I so appreciate your help!

Hoping you all enjoy Easter and that we can indulge in a warm summer!!!

Wishing you all a Bunny-tastic Easter!!!
