    30 Aug 2016

    Well it’s a few weeks since I last posted in the blog and as usual it has been busy. On 31st July we had our first 8 and unders Family Day. I set off and headed to Blair Drummond, near Stirling in time to get set up and meet the families for 12pm at Briarlands Farm Park. We had 72 people registered to attend and, whether it was because the sun was shining in the morning, 69 people number turned up! (Needless to say it didn’t stay sunny or dry all day!). What a fantastic day with children building sandcastles, playing on go karts, feeding the animals, taking part in the tractor ride and several families went strawberry picking :)
