We began our day today with the fantastic news that Sophie Hopkins (one of the original Fordhall Farm team) gave birth to a beautiful baby boy yesterday! Congratulations to Sophie and Hugo and welcome to the world baby Owen!
After our flurry of excitement, we got back to business. There are lots of fun activities coming up over the next few weeks beginning with….
The wonderful Jonathan Day who is appearing live here on Saturday 27th, he will be performing a mix of contemporary and traditional folk along with the talented Simon on double bass. Jonathan has been touring the world promoting his new album Between the Worlds. He was on Genevieve Tudor’s Sunday Folk show on BBC Radio Shropshire last Sunday. If you missed it (or don’t get Radio Shropshire) here is the link to listen again http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00yzsnv
During the interval a hearty Fordhall supper will be served (vegetarian option available). Local ales and wines will be for sale too. Tickets are only £15 and include food.
Don’t forget that British Summer Time ends on Sunday morning 1am…the clocks go back and we all get an extra hour in bed! Hooray!
So, with the extra hour of sleep you should all be raring to go on Sunday evening when we are holding our Fun and Frights Night. This has been very successful over the past 2 years and we are quite excited about it (see previous post for more detail). The office smells of fresh pumpkin and apple and my desk is surrounded by skeletons and gravestones ready for spooking on Sunday! Tickets are still available for this event, £3 in advance (£5 on the gate) Adults go Free!!
|Two Little Monsters!|
Still want more? We have a lovely family activity on Thursday 1st November (where has the year gone!?). Come and join in the Autumn Abodes Activity with Beth and create cosy homes for sleepy hedgehogs and snug nests for hibernating mice. With the winter coming in, wildlife all around the country will be gathering food and preparing their beds for the cold months ahead. It’s only £2 per child and booking is essential. Suitable for 4-11 year olds.
For more information or to book onto any of these events or activities, please call us in the office on 01630 638696.
