Choir visit to Greenhive Care Home

Choir children visited residents in Greenhive Care Home today.  They sang to the residents and then did colouring in activities with them.  The children were fantastic – they were warm and friendly to the residents and they sang with so much energy that some of the residents joined in with the actions.  Well done Choir!

Wick Court day 4 ….Happy Birthday to You (two!)

We woke up to a beautiful bright day today. The mist hung in the air and the sunrise gave the sky a lovely orange glow… a nice change from the grey drizzle of the past few days.

For those of us hiking (ambling) over the fields to Oldbury Dairy Farm, the mud slightly got the better of us (cue 10 minutes of trying to wrench wellies out and ending up almost face-first in it..) but we had a great time feeding calves and watching the cows be milked by ‘The Robot’.

The rest of us kept the animals at Wick Court fed and watered and then gathered to sing Happy Birthday for those celebrating birthdays today and tomorrow.

Our last full day was rounded off with an array of exciting activities, from bread making to birdwatching, ending with fantastic storytelling and hot apple juice in the Wick Court round house.

Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

Wick Court Farm Fun

Day 3 at Wick Court Farm and we’ve JUST about managed to get enough internet signal to send a few pictures back from our little corner of Gloucestershire to you all at home…

And we’re away!

The journey went smoothly and soon we were passing through idyllic villages and hearing excited squeals at each new sighting of farmyard animals…

Our home for the week …  The grand farmhouse at Wick Court
