12 of the Blackpool bunnies need to get to Blackberry Farm by Monday 23rd June, 12 noon where they will be collected by the RSPCA and taken on to Twickenham. They will already be in carriers which do not need returning.

If anyone can help with this part of the journey please reply on the thread :D

We can do to Preston (on the M6) and possibly further South if needed but need to be home by noon so Neil can have the car to get to work.

Thanks

Are you looking to transport them on Monday - if you could get the bunnies to Bolton I could take them on to Stoke(ish).

Hi Vanessa

I assume you would be going down the M6 - we could meet you on the M6 :D
Which days could you do?

Vanessa :wave:

I've just spoken to Helen at the Blackpool branch and the buns can travel from Saturday. It would be easier if we could do the whole thing on Monday as I doubt there are many people who can house 12 bunnies in various groups/pairs/singles overnight! However if someone can then Saturday is a definite option.

At the moment you are stranded in Stoke though ....

We are only 15 min drive from Blackberry farm (had lots of lovely buns and piggies from there in the past) So could do the last bit of the journey. We can't get as far as Stoke though as he has to got work by lunch time, don't know if this is any help.

Just realised I'm back at the fracture clinic Monday morning so can't do monday sorry.

We are about on Sunday if that helps.

Is there any reason why they can only go on Monday to blackberry farm. I know it is closed to the public monday and the drive way gates are locked as well

The buns are not actually stopping at Blackberry - they are being collected from there at 12 noon to be taken on to Twickenham. Blackberry haven't got spaces to keep them overnight as they have already taken some from us yesterday.

How far up could you do? And could you house the buns overnight - I'm not sure of the groups but I think there are quite a few singles in this journey.

I see, we could have taken them to Twickenham on Sunday if they could have been got to us.

We can't get them to blackberry farm on Monday as I'm at Milton Keynes hospital at 10.30 for x rays etc.

I have about 5 cages I could use overnight and we could get to watford gap but not sure if this helps now if we can't do monday

Theo if you can get to us you can probably get straight to blackberry farm it isn't far from here. Its just between quainton and ayelsbury

This is sounding hopeful -

Theo - Where would you like to pick up from in Warwickshire - Coventry? And are you available on Saturday, just in case we cant get a link up from Stoke on Monday?

Liz, if we have to do Saturday, are you OK to keep the buns for a couple of nights - we may be able to Blackberry to collect from you early on Monday for instance?

If they can be got to mine on Saturday that is no probs, as Steve is not around on Saturday for driving.

Would need to be collected from mine by 9.30 on Monday or in the afternoon.

Will need to know by tomorrow morning though as Steve will need to help me set up cages

Neil-and-Maria

Thanks Liz, it depends on whether Theo can do Saturday and if we can find a link person to do Stoke-Warwickshire on Saturday or Monday.

Maria x

If they do arrive Saturday, you could still take them on to Twickenham if you wanted to!! It's just transport from RSPCA could only be arranged for Monday.

I do love to confuse things!! :lol::lol:

Not sure if I can help anyone. Im free on Monday.

I have sent you a pm Maria as I don't want to complicate the thread.

Thanks Raine! Your offer gives us more options, I've pm'd Theo. :D Also Gemma has offered to do the Preston -Coventry/Nuneaton run on Saturday if Theo is available on Saturday.

If Theo can't do Saturday then we are back to Plan A with Vanessa to Stoke. :p

Just to update

On Saturday we have

Neil-and-Maria to Gemma

The buns will be staying with Hugo's There until Monday when they will go to Blackberry Farm.

Sounds like a plan to me!

Just checking, do we need to take them to blackberry farm or are they collecting from me ?

Makes sense for them to collect from me as it is less upheavel for buns and we are close to th M1 :D

Thanks Jane. :wave:

I'm pleased to report that the buns and piggies are all with Hugo's There and settled nicely.

A huge thanks to GemmaH, Snowy and Hugo's There - none of this could have happened without your help. Also a big thanks to VanessaB and Raine who have been on standby for Monday just in case something went wrong. You guys are all amazing. :D :love:
