Sundials and Sunflowers.

The "Sunflowers and Sundials" summer event down the farm was another swinging success, with 50 people coming along on Sunday 5th June. These events are held by the community for the community, and are only possible due to volunteers giving up their time beforehand as well as on the the day, and to the donations of cakes etc... So as always many thanks to our volunteers - and to everyone who came along and enjoyed the day!
