The Adventures of George ...Part Three....Preparing for the Working Weekend

...baah! As most of you know this weekend is the Fordhall Farm Working Weekend and as we have got people attending from all over the country I thought I better make an early start. So today I started collecting some of the tools that will be needed over the weekend. ....It's tough work but hopefully the hardworking volunteers will appreciate from my kind gesture. Not only is this weekend a working weekend but it is also Open Farm Sunday. This means that the farm is open to the public to enjoy a superb Fordhall BBQ (although as a lamb I am not going to linger on the thought of this!)a bug hunt for children and a guided walk at 12pm. This event is free and can come and say hi to me too!Bonus! Baaaaa!

If anyone reading this would liken to volunteer at a future volunteer working weekend please contact my good friend Hannah on 01630 638696 or email

Dear Charlotte and Hannah

Thank you so much for a really enjoyable day at Fordhall farm on Sunday (Farm Open

We were the slightly mad couple who had come from London

It was a bit damp but well worth the drive - (we had never seen the farm before)

We were very excited to meet everyone we read about in the newsletter

Ben's burgers were delicious - we went into the shop and bought some afterwards

We would love to come up again

I didn't get the chance to pass on my very small contribution for the roof appeal

So a cheques in the post

I hope you raise all the money you need - don't be afraid to ask for more though!

Keep smiling

Your enthusiasm and good nature won the day!
