Wroxham Barns has teamed up with the RSPB to offer free family activities on Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th February. From 10am to 3.30pm on both days, visitors can come along to the ‘Fun With Fatty Fir Cones’ sessions where they will be shown how to make bird-feeders from fir cones, fat, birdseed and cheese; the bird-feeders are then attached to a sticky white string so that they can be hung up in the garden. Guests can also have a go at making barn owl masks. Both activities are free of charge and will be held in Barny’s Barn just outside the Junior Farm; the sessions are open to all ages, although under fours may need a helping hand from their parents or carers.
Wroxham Barns’ owner, Ian Russell MBE, said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer these free activities with the RSPB over the February half-term. Families are always looking for something to do during the holidays and these sessions are fun for everyone, while being informative at the same time. We’ll also have plenty of other activities going on during the half-term week, with around two dozen little lambs arriving on the farm and bottle-feeding sessions taking place at 11am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm every day. The children’s funfair and mini golf course will also be open, as will our indoor play area, Piggy’s Play Sty, which is perfect whatever the weather.”
