Have Fun at The Farm at The Harvey Centre This Easter

THIS Easter, The Harvey Centre will be embracing the spirit of spring with a selection of farm-themed FREE events, between 11am and 4pm on Saturday 15th April.

During the event, children will have the opportunity to meet an array of real farm animals including a pony or donkey, sheep, goat, chickens, ducks, rabbits and a dog, in the centre’s special petting farm. They will have to chance to pet and stroke the animals – all supervised by the farmer himself. Furthermore they can let their enquiring minds run wild and ask any questions that pop into their heads, so the whole experience serves to be both fun and educational.

Fully embracing the countryside theme, The Harvey Centre will also be running a special kid’s workshop where children can meet ‘Farmer Frankie’ and her cheeky farmyard helper ‘Matilda muddy-boots’ as they embark upon a big day at work. During the event, children are invited to jump into the pig pen for some oinky games, put their boulder lifting skills to the test on the little tractor track and hook a duck in the duck pond. Finally kids can have some fun in the potato patch! Here they will pick their prize potato off the farm and turn it into a potato baby, complete with clothes and a birth certificate to take home!

No Easter event is complete without chocolate, so there will be FREE giveaways throughout the day, plus face painting and a special appearance by Harvey the Hippo.

Thomas Cook will also have some special treats to hand, so look out for the Easter bunnies throughout the day – giving out little chocolate eggs and discount vouchers to customers as they shop.

This year, for the first time ever, The Harvey Centre will be open for leisure and dining on Easter Sunday, so if you’re looking for something to do with family or friends, maybe a meal and a movie are the order of the day?

Bryan Young, Centre Manager at The Harvey Centre says, “Easter is always an exciting time of year for families, but with the kids off school for two weeks, it can be quite a struggle for families to come up with things to fill their time. So we’re really pleased to be able to offer a great day of fun for all at The Harvey Centre.”
