With February half term around the corner, Amelia Trust Farm have been busy planning their fundraising events and activities, to include their popular Farm Fundays. From Sat 23 February straight through until the 3 March there will bucket loads of fun happening on the Farm.
As always during school holidays, they will have a new Farm trail in place, this time it’s Bertie the Birdman’s Bird Trail for everyone to follow and see how many of the Farm’s feathered friends they can spot. The children will get a bird spotting booklet, pencil and card binoculars to take home. This can be purchased in The Farm Kitchen Cafe with cash.
Their fun packed Farm Fundays will also be back on Thursday the 28 Feb and Friday the 1 March, with indoor bouncy castles, soft play, ball pit, the bird trail, decorating your binoculars and ‘Today on the Farm’ enclosure talks all included in the price of the tickets. The whole family are sure to enjoy this! The tickets can be purchased online.
They have also recently launched their ‘Today on the Farm’ on weekends, which will be running during half term weekends too. You can come and see the animal staff carrying out the daily animal routines every weekend, from watching the pigs being fed, the donkeys being groomed or the lambs having their feet trimmed. On visiting Amelia Trust Farm there will be a board stating times and locations where daily animal routines will be carried out. Watch and learn about the animals. All you have to do is go to the enclosure and watch the Animal Care Workers and Volunteers with their daily routines. You will be able to ask questions about the animals and learn more about the Farm.
This is not a paid activity or hands on and will vary every weekend.
Full details of all these events, prices and times can be found on the events section of the Amelia Trust Farm’s website: https://www.ameliatrust.org.uk/Pages/Events/Category/events and their Facebook page. The Farm is a registered charity and receives no statutory funding. The income generated from these half term activities will go towards supporting the important work that the Farm does with vulnerable and disadvantaged young people in a therapeutic setting.
