Father Christmas volunteers for propagation place? What a great guy!

A BIG thank you to everyone who came along to the Farm’s Winter Fair last Sunday, and helped to make it such a lovely family event.

Thanks to your support we also raised £2,400 for Farm funds, about half of which will go towards the £8,500 per year it costs us to feed and keep the animals, and the rest supporting our charitable day services for vulnerable children and adults. 

So your support really helps make a difference. Thank you.

Next up is our Wassail on Sat 27th January at Boiling Wells. Hope to see you there.

With best wishes for Christmas,
from all at St Werburghs City Farm.
