Corrie Star to Open Horse Rescue Centre

Coronation Street actress Kate Ford, who plays ‘villain’ Tracy Barlow in the popular soap, will be visiting Norfolk in April to officially open the brand new Redwings Visitor Centre at Aylsham. 

The award-winning actress has a strong connection to Redwings, aside from her own love of horses. Kate’s own pony Roxy was retired to Redwings Horse Sanctuary in 2004; the actress has always been a big fan of the charity’s work and has kept in contact with the team, even after Roxy sadly passed away. She has agreed to be part of a special Fun Day at Aylsham on Saturday 27th April to help celebrate the new visitor centre’s opening. Entry is free.

“We’re delighted that Kate has agreed to officially open our new visitor centre,” explains Redwings Chief Executive Lynn Cutress. “Kate’s on screen character may be somewhat controversial, but we know Kate herself to be a kind, horse-loving woman who has always taken great interest in our work. It will be a pleasure to involve her with this new centre, and we’re thrilled that she has agreed to meet our supporters.”
