Children in Need Charity Pumpkin Extravaganza 2014

2 Nov 2014 21:14:33

We raised a total of £2,600 for Children in Need on Friday 31st October 2014.  A great night was had by all and the night even featured our very own minions!

On Friday 31st October we had our annual Pumpkin Extravaganza.  This event has built up over the years and features a children’s play, fancy dress competition, colouring competition and a spectacular fireworks display.  The play this year followed an X Factor theme after the very popular ITV show and it saw 5 acts trying to win over the judges that had been picked from the audience of children.  Act 1 was the Ghostbuster dancers, act 2 was a Thriller dance, act 3 was the scary skeletons dancing to the skeleton song, act 4 was the 5 witches from the farm shop and act 5 was the minions! We even made our own costumes this year and are hoping that they will come in handy again soon!  Act 2 was voted the favourite by our 4 judges and was our very own Mark Sismore dancing to Thriller as Stay Puft Marshmallow man from Ghostbusters!  The evening then moved onto children’s games, and announcement of the colouring competition winners and the judging of the fancy dress competition.  We had a hog roast, burgers, hot dogs and also our very own homemade pumpkin soup on offer which was enjoyed by many.  At 7.30pm the AMAZING fireworks finished the evening and really were spectacular!  We would like to thank everyone that came and supported the event and a massive thank you to all our staff that stayed on to help.  A great night had by all and we hope that we will see everyone again next year.

  • My family and I visited last Sunday for the roast dinner and all I can say is wow.

    The portions were generous and there was plenty of meat, on both the small and large plates, and a good selection of veg. Everything was cooked perfectly and it was piping hot… There is also a great selection of desserts and the apple pie was delicious.

    If you are ever in the area do yourself a favour and visit!

  • The farm shop is well stocked with an in house Bakery and Butchery department, all offering excellent produce, much produced by the proprietors themselves and all beautifully displayed.

  • First rate! The food was excellent and the staff courteous and helpful. I would highly recommend the restaurant. We will be going there again.

  • The children LOVED picking the strawberries in the fields, the restaurant was absolutely superb, it was busy but the staff were very attentive, the garden was beautiful and their was plenty of space for the children to run around in.

    All of there produce including meat, eggs, fruit and vegetables are used in the kitchen and the result is a traditional farmhouse menu.

    It is not uncommon to see dripping vegetables just harvested come into the kitchen and fresh eggs laid that day being used in many dishes.
