On the evening of 21st December the local Salvation Army Band and helpers visited the farm for a walkaround carol-singing event, with people in costume helping to bring the Christmas story to life. A high point was the tableau they staged in the animal house. Their emergency response vehicle (aka tea wagon) provided refreshments, they provided very efficient stewarding, and almost 200 people of all ages turned up to sing and enjoy the experience. Donations made on the evening will be split between the urban farm and the Salvation Army.
We thank the Salvation Army for creating a most memorable occasion – a ‘first’ for the farm.
