The heart of our vision is to provide children with special needs and their families a safe space to unwind, explore and learn, reducing anxiety and creating positive experiences. In addition we'd like to target other groups where there is a need for support/ rest and recuperation in order to improve mental well being.
We have now got new marquee in place for the animalsThis will be beneficial to the whole family as it can be used for childrens parties, Christmas events, Halloween and Bonfire events plus many more events. It will also provide a safe place for any sheep lambing if and when required.
Our littlefarmer events are loved by all the families that attend. You can see the review below.
We have now created a sitting area and kitchen space for families to use. Our aim is to convert the end stable into a sensory space for children/ adults to unwind in.
Great space for doing craft, sitting in the warm and eating your packed lunch. Little play area is great for toddlers and older kids and links to our new project that will be ready to access mid 2023 the growing together field that will house a large timber greenhouse, large children run and fruit orchard. Also in 2023 a new senory room.
This year we was granted £7000 from National Grid to supply and fit solar enegry which will mean a working electric hob and oven, fridge, kettle and toaster. This will enable visitors to make them selves and drink or peice of toast.
Keep watching this space.
Create a volunteer family consisting of a variety of roles to assist with the smooth running of the retreat.
