The weather was very kind, the entertainment was superb as always, and the support from the local community, and from further afield was very encouraging. There were times when it was almost impossible to move between the marquees for visitors enjoying the day out
We recorded a total of 1,118 adults passing through the gate, which as an estimate, swelled to about 1,900 altogether counting a typical number of accompanying children That was an average of 380 people per hour . The day is very much about fundraising for the Farm to feed the animals and help to keep us going for another year, but it is also to provide a community day out for all the family at very low cost and we certainly achieved that this year with what was a record attendance.
The Trustees would like to thank all who attended as visitors for their support and spending on the Stalls and Refreshments, and a special thank you to the Stallholders and community volunteers themselves for their help which always makes the day special.
The ice-cream man sends a special thank you !
