A new children’s play area at a popular farm shop in Grayingham has been voted a resounding success after 2,500 people came along to its grand opening event this month.
Uncle Henry’s is an award-winning farm shop, cafe and butchery which every year holds a free event known as open farm Sunday which is to raise awareness about food and farming.
The event involves fun activities such as pig racing, tractor rides, falconry displays, dog shows and various more activities.
In addition to this, this year’s open farm Sunday involved the opening of the new play area for children known as the Farmer’s Den.
The leader of West Lindsey Council, Coun Jeff Summers designed the new play area which is intended for children of all ages up to the age of 16.
The park contains an amazing tractor track, along with ride-on pedal tractors.
There is also a climbing frame, basket swing, sandpit and a tractor and trailer slide.
The park was a huge success with all the children that were at the opening.
Meryl Ward, owner of Uncle Henry’s said “West Lindsey is becoming a fantastic tourist destination and we are pleased to be able to provide a new free play area attraction for visiting families.”
“Our farm setting is a great environment for children.”
During the summer, Uncle Henry’s will be holding events and activities which include play sessions in the Farmers Den.
Other summer activities involve learning how to make your own burgers and sausage rolls which is run by Louise Jarvis the butchery and deli manager.
Also, events such as Fun in the Forest, Meet the Animals and Get Creative in the Garden will be held by Nicky who is the gardener at Uncle Henry’s.
Tickets cost £6. For more information visit the Uncle Henry’s website at www.unclehenrys.co.uk
