We are running FREE activity mornings on three Thursdays in August:
Thursday 14th August — Wildlife safari
Animal tracks and signs, minibeasts and pond creatures.
Read a post about the safari here.
Thursday 21st August— Woodland crafts
Make some artwork using natural objects from the woodland.
Thursday 28th August — Night time neighbours
Empty moth and mammal traps to get a glimpse of those secretive animals we rarely see.
Each activity morning will run from 10am to 12.30pm.
Each activity morning will include the chance to see the dairy and watch our Jersey cows milking themselves!
Booking is essential. To reserve a place, please email the farm’s Education Officer, Annika Rees, at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also use this email address for any queries regarding the activity mornings.
Please note Children must be accompanied by an adult (or two, if you wish) throughout each event. Bring drinks and wellies!
If you want to bring a packed lunch and have a picnic at the farm afterwards, please do!
Pierrepont Farm is located off The Reeds Road, Frensham GU10 3BP, between the Frensham Garden Centre and the Rural Life Centre. (On the same side as, and closer to, the garden centre.)
Satnav users please note: it’s a long story but GU10 3BP is not really the farm’s postcode — but we use it because it gets you to The Reeds Road. Once you are between The Rural Life Centre and the Frensham Garden Centre, ignore/switch off the satnav and follow the signs to the farm, starting with the one below, otherwise your device will start sending you to one of the other businesses behind the garden centre.
Once you have entered the farm (ie. just after the speed hump), take the first left and park on the grass on the left of the slope in front of the large wooden building that is the dairy. If nobody is in sight, enter the dairy via the door to the left of the clock tower, take the first left and the classroom where the activities begin will be on your right.
NB this post is “sticky” and will stay at the head of this column of blog posts until the day after the last activity morning (longer, if the webmaster forgets to take it down). Please scroll down to see later posts.
