Nethercott Alumni Day

2nd April 2016, Nethercott House, 9.30am – 4pm

Come to Nethercott for a wonderful day reliving tales of muck and magic!

Farms for City Children is having an open day for 39 people who have visited the farm before as a teacher or pupil, where you will be able to get stuck in with trailer rides, feeding and weighing the pigs, gardening, grooming the ponies and donkeys, mucking out and collecting eggs. We will be serving lots of tea and coffee, a lovely lunch and cake too.

It’s completely free, but you do need to have full waterproofs and wellington boots, no matter what the weather!

Please contact Connie on or 01392 276381 to book your place.
