First Gore Farm visit…


The first group of children have visited Gore Farm, Trent and have had a brilliant time! They hunted high and low to collect a variety of leaves and foliage to make a ‘woodland collection’, visited the geese, walked through the woods and warmed their hands with a hot chocolate.

The team at Gore Farm made us feel very welcome and we are excited to be going back with more children in the next couple of weeks.
