HAVE FUN DOWN ON THE FARM

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

ADULTS and chil­dren alike can meet a farm’s new ar­rivals at a two-day event this week­end.

Hazeldene Farm in Ash­eridge Road, Che­sham, is hold­ing a Lamb­ing Week­end event on Satur­day and Sun­day from 11am to 4pm.

Due to the un­prece­dented suc­cess of last year’s Lamb­ing Day, the farm de­cided to make it a two day event.

Satur­day is Adults’ Day, although chil­dren are also wel­come, and ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing meet the new lambs, free arts and craft ta­ble, sand art cards, free but­ter­fly trail, ice cream van, lo­cal food pro­duc­ers and craft stalls, farm shop and a tea room.

Sun­day is Chil­dren’s Day and in­cludes the same ac­tiv­i­ties as Adults’ Day plus a pet­ting farm, bouncy cas­tle, face paint­ing and chil­dren’s round­about. A per­cent­age of the pro­ceeds from the event will go to Chiltern Friends of the En­deav­our, which sup­ports dis­abled adults with vary­ing de­grees of phys­i­cal and learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties.

En­try costs £1 for adults and free for un­der 16s. Visit www.hazeldene

THE Crown in Ley Hill is set to hold a Beer Fes­ti­val this Bank Hol­i­day week­end fol­low­ing the suc­cess of its in­au­gu­ral May fes­ti­val last year.

The Crown will hold the event on Sun­day and Mon­day.

There will be a beer tent with more than 20 dif­fer­ent beers from lo­cal and UK brew­eries as well as live mu­sic on both days out­side from 3pm, weather per­mit­ting, and a bar­be­cue from 2pm.

Land­lord Ai­dan McCarthy said: “Af­ter last year’s suc­cess it’s set to be a great week­end and a lit­tle warm-up to the big one in Au­gust.”

A SE­LEC­TION of new films will be on of­fer to view­ers at Pinewood Cinema in Iver Heath this week­end. In­her­ent Vice, star­ring Joaquin Phoenix and Owen Wil­son, will be screened on Satur­day and Sun­day along with White God, a film about a young girl who is forced to give up her beloved dog.

For chil­dren there will be the an­i­mated film Home, about a friendly alien who vis­its Earth.
