The Mayor of Rojales Antonio Perez Garcia accompanied by his Councillors for Tourism, Education and Foreign Residents visited the Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre this Sunday.
They took the easy horse tour and got to meet some of our residents and hear their stories. Sue explained Faith’s story to the councillors and about her eBook “Dairy of a Heroic Horse” now available on amazon about Faiths life.
The Mayor was particularly interested in our latest arrival little Sancho the young donkey brought to us a few weeks ago. The Mayor gave a heart-felt speech about the EHCRC Foundation being an important part of Rojales and how links with the centre and the Town Hall will be strengthened in the future.
The Education Councillor was keen to encourage the local schools to visit the centre and for pupils to learn more about the animals and what goes on here at the centre as well as develop their English language speaking and listening skills.
Sue and Rod explained to the councillors that the centre was for all nationalities and she is keen to get the local Spanish population more involved as both visitors and volunteers. They discussed with the mayor and volunteer David East (a resident of Rojales) ways to increase visitors and awareness of the centre. The mayor of Rojales has given us permission to put up some sign posts in the local area, so it will be easier to find us in the future. “Rojales is our community and we love it here, having resided at the house for 13 years. We have had massive support from the local farmer/s and we support the local farming community by buying horse feed from them and donating the manure for their crops”.
A great day out was had by the Mayor and his councillors and as always our gentle giant Dexter made sure he was right in the middle of the action
