On Sunday morning a party of Journal competition winners were picked up from their homes and transported in a comfortable coach to Peter’s farm at Hanby, where we were given an interesting nature/agricultural talk and walk, followed by a trailer ride.
We were then taken to Syston Fruit Farm, where we were treated to a wonderful meal and fruit-picking session. Next we went to John’s farm at Dry Doddington, to see his cows being milked before his family brought out beautiful home-made cakes for tea in his garden.
On behalf of Joe, Jeff, Joy and myself, we should like to say a huge thank you to all these farming families who made our day so enjoyable, not forgetting our bus driver, Jackie, and Alison for making all the arrangements, enabling the day to run so smoothly.
Mrs Barbara Kime
