On Sunday 16th June, from 11am until 3pm, Denmark Farm will be opening its gates to all for a long-awaited Open Day.
We have not held an Open Day for two years so we are really pulling out the stops to make this a memorable one. The event will also celebrate the finale of our three-year ‘Wildlife Where You Live’ project funded by The Big Lottery Fund, Environment Wales, Countryside Council for Wales and The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
There will be activities to suit many interests including: pond dipping, guided tours of the new Eco Lodge and new community wildlife garden, pony rides, crafts and stalls galore plus presentations and lots of information about wildlife and sustainability. You can get help with wildlife identification with Clare Flynn from i-spot: bring your camera to take a photo of something you find here on the day, or a photo you have already taken, and Clare will show you how to access the i-spot community of experts and enthusiasts. We hope also to have PureRide offering a bike clinic and many other exciting activities.
There will be plentiful food & refreshments too. Tom Bean will be here with his mobile pizza oven and Made in Mach are supplying delicious hot and cold vegetarian meals. Not forgetting tea, coffee and yummy homemade cakes.
Come along to see a showcase of all that is good for wildlife and the environment. We hope to see you here.
