Throughout the weekend on Millennium Square.
Whirlow Hall Farm’s pop up farmyard brings their chickens, ducks, sheep and lambs to visit the city centre, this year featuring an enclosed beehive too!
Have your photo taken on their tractor, enjoy some stories in the trailer or get involved with craft activities across the weekend.
About Whirlow Hall Farm Trust: Whirlow Hall Farm works directly with children across South Yorkshire; whether it’s developing a healthy relationship with food, seeing an animal for the first time or helping to get their lives back on track. Together, we help thousands of local children and young people to raise their aspirations and improve their life chances.
Each year we provide a range of sessions to inspire children and bring their studies to life, we particularly encourage schools and groups that experience financial and other disadvantages or special needs; and those who struggle within mainstream education.
We believe every child, whatever their background or circumstances, deserves an opportunity to learn and develop to their full potential. Our team strives to provide access and opportunities for all children giving them the chance to work and interact with the environment in a positive, safe and stimulating way. From ‘Where our food comes from’ programmes to physical activities including farm jobs, earth walks, pond dipping and pony riding, all our work is designed to engage young people in learning. Activities are designed to raise confidence and self-esteem, develop team work and communication skills, unlock potential and raise aspirations.
