Roves Farm Visitor Centre opens again to the public for the new 2010 season this week with much hilarity on the free tractor and trailer rides.
The story of the Three Little Pigs will be told with an extra bit of artistic licence! Everyone is invited to try and blow down the three little pigs houses and even the very young children can get involved. Crafty half hour will have a “piggy” theme to it too, with stand up paper pigs and pig masks to cut out and colour.
“Last year was the first time we had tried the ‘Three Little Pigs’ theme and it was so successful, that we have made it part of our programme of events for the school holidays. I don’t think there are any children who don’t know the story.’ says Pat Hoddinott from the Roves Farm team of staff.
There will be spotty pigs of all sizes and you might even see some piglets being born, as one of the farm’s nine sows is due to farrow shortly.
Bouncing baby lambs and cute baby chicks are also hoped to be available for the children to feed and hold.
All the old favourite animals will be ready for the visitors return, as they have had a very quiet few weeks since Christmas.
The younger children will enjoy the heated soft play area, while the older ones will be able to rush around the big bale tunnels and adventure play, whatever the weather.
The Granary Tearoom is looking very smart since its refurbishment and will be ready to provide delicious hot drinks and tempting hot snacks, sandwiches and homemade cakes.
The Farm Visitor Centre is open everyday during half term week right up until Sunday 21 February and then Wednesday to Sunday until the Easter Holidays, 10.30am –5.00pm.
