“I can see clearly now the rain has gone”

Well what a scorcher September was! The sunshine has been fantastic and the animals have definitely enjoyed how quickly the grass is still growing because of it!

A few exciting things have happened in the last month. Our Rhea chicks were finally old enough to move outside and join the adults, and they’re doing great. (Even learning that the Train=Food)

We have also built our Haunted House again, ready for our Halloween event. Our Halloween activities also include the Ghost Train, Pumpkin Letter Hunt, Face Painting and more. The dates for this year’s event are 10th to 19th October, 24th & 25th October, 31st Oct & 1st Nov. The park itself will be open as normal and there is no additional charge or need to book for our Halloween event.

The doors are now being added to the Cottage Industry Workshops meaning we’ll soon be able to tackle some of the interiors. We are still looking for tenants with products such as pottery, home produce, textiles or perhaps you have a better idea? If you or anyone you know would be interested in renting a workshop, email us at julie@eastlinks.co.uk for more information.

Our shop is currently over run with Free Range Eggs due to our Lohman Brown hens being in overdrive! We sell both the hens and the eggs here, the eggs are £1.50 a half dozen. As for the hens, Lohman Browns are renowned as one of the best laying breeds there is. They also become very friendly and can make great pets! They’re £12 per hen and they can easily lay an egg a day each!

We sell Membership and Family Day Ticket vouchers all year round and they make great birthday presents/gifts. If you visit the park more than 4 times a year, you would be saving money by becoming a member. For more information on either of these call 01368863607

Our Facebook highlight this month was some fantastic selfies with our animals! If anyone has any good photos of the park please do not hesitate to send them to our Facebook page where you can also receive regular updates and photos of what’s going on! You can also follow us on Twitter @eastlinks1.

See you all soon,
