Storm Arwen: Snow falls over Gloucestershire as ‘blizzard’ hits

Chicken coop lands on ‘devastating’ animal charity fence

Due to Storm Arwen an “absolute disaster” hit a local animal charity today.

Dean Farm Trust, located in Chepstow, Monmouthshire, is an animal shelter that provides ‘miniature Shetland ponies, Exmoor ponies, donkeys, pigs, sheep and ex-battery hens a home for life’.

Unfortunately, due to bad weather, they posted on their social media this morning, reporting that a chicken coop blew across the country and crashed into a fence.

Calling for help, they wrote: “An absolute disaster this morning with one of our henhouses blown through the completely destroyed hen haven, landing on the fence.

“We had everything prepared for the bird containment which begins on Monday and we are now a house broken down and with 56 girls to protect, it is devastating for them.

“We also have two shelters on the ground and broken fences. Help us if you can, we need another house ASAP and fix the fences.

“Any donation, even £ 1, will help us. Please share and if you have fencing experience and can help us please send us a message.

“Despite the storms, all of our residents are doing well, no one has been hurt. Thank you, Mary.”
