Amelia Trust Farm has shared its excitement at being able to welcome visitors from today, under the latest easing of lockdown restrictions.
The community farm has remained open during lockdown to support disadvantaged young people aged 11 – 16 years, who are struggling in school through its Grow Programme, which has offered an alternative school programme for 30 years.
To fund its work, the charity welcomes visitors to the farm – which on Monday (26th) it was able to do so for the first time since December.
Director of Amelia Trust Farm Karen Turnball said the reopening was a “relief” for the charity, who have been “waiting and waiting to be allowed to reopen by Welsh Government to visitors and its just lovely to have everyone back.”
Visitors will be able to see the farms beautiful new kid goats and honey, the pet chickens new hatch of eight chicks.
Karen told Bro Radio “The farm is outdoors so we have no problems with ventilation, with lots of fresh air here. We are a covid secure place for people to come, with timed tickets to monitor numbers and make sure people are aware that we have a one way system in place, plenty of hand washing facilities and we remind people about social distancing.”
“We have made every effort, as we did when we were open back in the summer to ensure that its a safe place for people to visit.”
