Roves Farm Visitor Centre is offering all mums a free day out at the farm when accompanied by a paying child on Mothers Day. Special willow craft sessions are being held for mums, and children can make willow dream catchers to take home. Whilst you relax in the countryside, why not treat mum to a delicious homemade cream tea in the Granary Tearoom.
Animal Racing will once again commence on Mothers Day, with the goats, sheep and pigs racing for Against Breast Cancer, a charity close to the hearts of many mums. Pippa Burr, Animal Manager says ‘The sheep have teddy bear jockeys on, which bob up and down as they run, making it even more entertaining! Visitors are welcome to race against the animals as well’.
Mothers Day coincides with Jimmy the donkey’s fifth birthday this year! All the donkeys at the Farm Visitor Centre are very friendly, and love to have cuddles. Jimmy will be enjoying lots of extra birthday cuddles on Sunday 18th!
A full programme of events include: Meet and Feed a wide range of farm animals, Pets Corner, Animal Racing, Free Tractor and Trailer Rides, Children’s Craft and lots more! Roves Farm has plenty of indoor eating and activity areas, most of which are heated on chilly days. It is an ideal venue on wet days – we’ve got it covered!
Hours of play in the Indoor Big Bale Stack with tunnels, Bouncy Castle, Slippery Slide, Ball Pond and Toy Tractors keeping everyone entertained, whilst smaller children will love the indoor heated soft play and sandpit. And for the sunny days, there’s the brilliant outdoor ‘Farmers Den’, 2 Acre Willow Maze with clue sheets and a Short Family Walk with a quiz past our Animal Paddocks.
Roves Farm Visitor Centre is open daily, 10:30am-5:00pm. For more information please visit www.rovesfarm.co.uk or telephone 01793 763939.
