Children enjoyed their Easter-inspired day at Princes Manor Farm in Harwell last Friday, where they met lambs as well as a hen called ‘Geoff’ and her chicks. They also took part in an Easter bonnet parade and enjoyed face painting and storytelling.
Both children and parents could also enjoy cake, chocolate and craft stalls.
With raffle tickets and prizes donated by both local and national stores including Tesco and Waitrose, the event raised £230.
Karen Hawkes, the organiser said to Henley Standard: “We held this for the first time last year and it was very successful, so we wanted to repeat it. It’s not just about raising funds, but making the community aware that we’re here.
“We were very pleased with the turnout and the Rosemary Club members got a huge amount of pleasure from seeing the children as some of them are quite isolated at times. We were very lucky with the weather, which was almost too good to be true for the time of year.”
Katherine Page-Howie, the nursery’s headteacher, said: “It was such a lovely afternoon and a wonderful opportunity for many young children, not just those who are members of our nursery, to come together and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.”
