We are located 4 miles north of Cirencester, between the villages of North Cerney, and Woodmancote. From A435 you take the turning towards Bagendon, go up past the Church to the T junction. Turn right towards Woodmancote and Scrubditch Farm is approximately 100 yards on the right. The Care Farm is situated down the drive, up the track on the left.
From A417, turn off at Perrotts Brook/Daglingworth, and proceed towards Perrotts Brook. Just before the A435, turn left towards Woodmancote. Go for approximately 1 1/2 miles and Scrubditch Farm is on the right, just past the Bagendon/North Cerney Cross Roads.

We are missing David this time - i hope he's enjoying himself wherever he is...
We've got lots of plans for this Winter - and Will & Ben got started with mending the gates of the Stock Trailer - ready for taking our 4 sheep off to the ram next month.

Lavinia is still limping - i don't think the Anti biotics helped - we're trying arnica & witch hazel gel - to see if it helps - her elbow is still a little swollen, and much warmer than it should be - but  she seems perfectly happy in herself - so...we will keep our fingers crossed.

Simon & Steve's Stir Fry made with veggies grown
by students at the Project!
On Wednesday, we took 4 students to the Royal Agricultural College 'Training Kitchens' as part of British Food Fortnight - we had a great time, making chutneys, stir frys and a delicious pudding - all from produce the students had grown at the Project! Thank you to Sue and her team, for making us all feel so welcome.

On Thursday Bob took Simon & Steve to check on their Bird Boxes - we took them down and brought them home to look inside - SO exciting, Simon's had an old next & egg in it!  Steve's had signs of activity too - and we have made notes in the wildlife diary.  We will put them back again this week - we tried to look at some of the contents through the microscope - but Luke's 8 year old birthday microscope wasn't quite up to the job!!
CAR BOOT tomorrow - so will let you know how it went next week...!

At the vets...!
Helen, looking a little nervous
holding Lavinia ready for her
daily dose of Antibiotics!

Our two ducks, Lewey and Dewey are not who we thought they were - they started laying last week!!

So, we have quickly re-named them - well, Ella has, 'LAVINIA AND DEIDRE'!!

Lavinia, has got a very sore elbow, so we had to take her to the vet last Wednesday.   Did you know that ducks get car sick??! Both journeys...She is now on anti biotics, but not much better yet.
