Pumpkinfest at Park Hall Countryside Experience

Dear Blogger

Get Ready for Pumpkinfest!

We're gearing up for spooky season down on the farm.

3,000 pumpkins are on their way ready for our Pumpkinfest event. We are expecting lots of pumpkin-carving, Halloween-loving visitors this October!

We will be open every day from the 15th to the 31st October, providing some entertainment over half term and Halloween.

Every paying child will receive a free pumpkin to carve in our huge pumpkin shed, which they can take home at the end of the day. Grown-ups can enjoy leaving all the mess behind for us to deal with!
The Halloween activities include Pumpkin Alley, The Witches Cavern, The Little Scare House and singing pumpkins.

There will be lots of fun and games every day of Pumpkinfest, including 'Pass the Pumpkin' and wrapping Daddies in toilet roll to turn them in to spooky mummies!

There will also be a daily Halloween fancy dress competition, so please come wearing your best costumes!

All of our usual farm activities are included in the ticket price. Meet the farm animals, explore all the play areas, ride on our barrel train, see the pig race, and lots more.

All tickets must be pre-booked. Our Pumpkinfest event aims to provide the perfect level of spookiness, that isn't too scary for youngsters - we hope you will join us!
Buy tickets!
Park Hall Farm is open Friday - Sunday only until our Pumpkinfest event, when we'll be open every day 15th - 31st October.

Children under two years old go free. All tickets must be purchased in advance from the website.

We hope to see you soon!

Booka Presents
AN EVENING WITH
Matt Baker


Saturday 16th October 7.30 pm (doors 6.30pm)

The Lion Quays Hotel, Weston Rhyn, Oswestry, SY11 3EN

Live 'In Person' Event.

Join us for an evening in the company of much loved TV presenter Matt Baker as he talks about his new book 'A Year on the Farm'.

Matt Baker's first ever book, a diary of the natural year and a glimpse into family life on the farm, peppered with his hand drawn sketches and moments from his TV career throughout.

Away from the bright lights of hosting our favourite television programmes, Countryfile, The One Show, Blue Peter and many more, Matt Baker is happiest on the farm with his family, dogs, array of sheep, Mediterranean miniature donkeys and a whole host of wildlife in the farm's ancient woodland.

A celebration of the natural year, Matt Baker takes us on a journey through the seasons, his life on the farm and how the power and beauty of the countryside has made him who he is.

Don't miss this opportunity to see Matt 'live' in Oswestry!

Event Format:

Matt Baker will talk 'in conversation' about life on the farm and his TV career.  This will be followed by an audience Q&A.

Tim, Carrie & the Booka Team

Please accept our sincere apologies with any delays to answering our telephone lines, emails or in person when presenting at the practice reception. 

If you are contacting the practice for any query that can wait a few days, we would appreciate you contacting us later in the week. 

If you require an appointment, please do contact us, it just might take a little longer to answer our telephone line.

If you are arriving for an appointment our self-check in screen is now available, please use this as this will help reduce the queue at reception.

Home Grown Show - a great success, thank you

Dear Blogger

Message from Ruyton XI Towns Village Hall Committee 

Home Grown Show 2021

 

The Village Hall Committee wishes to thank all of the Sponsors, Donors, Judges, Helpers and Exhibitors that enabled us to hold the show again after the Covid19 break. 

Standards were very high and in some classes two first prizes were awarded as it wasn't possible to split the exhibits. 

Also a big thank you goes to the people who managed to get to support the show on the day and those who supported the event via the online raffle. 

Thank you again

See attached pictures of the event by Colin Case.

Lovely to see super high-quality items in the Craft Section – Linda delighted to win First and Second with her blanket and child's cardigan!

But the biggest success is another step in returning to some sort of normality!

Well done all the organisers and helpers for running a nearly-normal but safe Home Grown Show.

And a huge thanks to Sponsors, Entrants and Visitors – brilliant!

Colin
