The Easter Holidays are nearly over and the park has been busy after some great weather. The animals have been busy too, ‘Milly’ our Belted Galloway cow gave birth to a bull calf at the end of last month and today ‘Belle’ the British Blue cow gave birth to a heifer calf and one of our pigs delivered 4 piglets! The little hut which used to house our quail has been transformed into a housing and play area for Degus. Degus are small rodents sometimes referred to as ‘brush-tailed rats’ which originate from South America. Keep up to date on new arrivals and additions by ‘liking’ our Facebook page.
Work is almost complete on our 18 Hole Crazy Golf attraction which will be open in a few weeks time after the pre Easter weather delayed progress. At the moment 14 out of the 18 holes have been turfed, obstacles made/painted and farm themed statues positioned. Located in and around our pond it will include lots of farm themed holes, bridges, obstacles and will give kids a chance to teach parents a trick or two.
The Duck Race around the pond opened and is a great success. This allows families to race against each other using rubber ducks (although the feathered variety are enjoying this racing channel too!). Starting at the duck slide it takes around 8-10 minutes from Start to Finish and you can have a leisurely walk round cheering your duck on. The duck race also brought with it an unexpected attraction – the frogs and toads which can now be easily spotted along the edge.
The Massive Annual Easter Egg Hunt took place over the Easter weekend with 120 Easter Eggs and over 2,400 crème eggs being given out. Hundreds of children and adults joined in the Easter fun getting their bunny noses and whiskers painted with donations going towards new mobility scooters which have now been purchased.
