Fused Glass Workshop

Fused Glass Workshop

We will be holding a Fused Glass Workshop at Tia on Thursday 3rd October. During a two hour workshop, you will be shown the basics of fused glass to make a tea light holder. It is a hands on workshop, and no experience is necessary. A great experience for anyone looking for something new to do with friends or family. Choose from either the morning session (10am – 12noon), or afternoon (1 – 3pm). Max of 10 people per session. The cost will be £45 per person, payable in advance.  To book and pay, please contact Tia Rescue on 01302 772935.

Coffee and Craft Mornings

There will be no Coffee and Craft Mornings at Tia in July and August but they will resume in September.

Ey Up 2020 venue

The Ey Up 2020 team have spent the past couple of weekends standing in fields, in the rain, armed with a notepad, trundle wheel and a calculator, assessing available space, facilities, accessibility…the list goes on, but we’ve reached a decision, and we’re thrilled to be using…

Those of you that visit us at Wroot Rocks may already be familiar with Tia as you pass it on the way into Wroot.

Let me tell you a little bit about Tia Rescue and the amazing work they do.

Tia Rescue was founded in 1996 – their mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home greyhounds and shire horses.

They have a dog-friendly cafe, which also serves dogie dinners as well as a range of lovely home-cooked meals for their people. Their breakfasts are legendary!

Admission to the centre is free if you fancy a stroll around the orchard and farm, let the kids feed the chickens and goats or play on the climbing frame, maybe take a greyhound for a walk.

There’s a charity shop onsite and sofas in the chill-out area next to the log burner. Not that we’ll need that, of course! You could even hire the dog paddock you want to let your dogs have a good run off the lead.

Their website is tia-rescue.org for more information.

We’ll be using the paddocks to the rear of the site, 20 acres in total so there’ll be plenty of room for us to spread out. We’ll have our own separate entrance so as not to disturb the regular visitors, but please do venture over to support them. And don’t blame us if you leave with a greyhound ? ?

Now we have the location sorted, we will be able to concentrate on putting the finishing touches to the line-up and getting the website up and running again. Hopefully, we won’t keep you all waiting for too much longer!

Fire away with your questions guys!

Weekly Update from Tia Rescue

Weekly Update from Tia Rescue

Another normal week at Tia. 3 new greyhounds brought in by a trainer and another unexpected black boy that turned up in the yard with his owner.
Never mind the waiting list, I only have about 60 waiting to come in.
Jaeda found her new home. Good luck girl.
Kenneth the little cob went to his new home and another 3 ponies reserved.
One of the ducklings died and one of the feral kittens, poor little mites. The feisty black cat that we got from the vets that was going to be put down has made an appearance, fortunately in daylight otherwise you would be proper scared. She is more feral than any feral cat we have ever seen and she’s lived indoors previously.
The usual suspects are at it on facebook and we are seriously going to have to rethink the dog walking because as per, some people don’t listen, lie and are putting our dogs at risk. It will be a shame for the genuine folk. Any ideas gratefully received….
The ponies at the bottom of the road are being looked after, they have lots of water, all the time. So at least that’s one headache over with for the minute….
And shock horror, me and Bob got a few nights away….thanks to our amazing staff, volunteers and friends who keep this place going….Thank you….Deb

Forgot the ducklings!! Had another 2 fetched in whilst we were away..unwanted little babies…
