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.

Breaking for Christmas!

I should have done the last blog by now....sorry too much going on of course! 

We had a lovely Christmas Lunch with all the students, their carers, and our volunteers here in the kitchen - 24 in total!  I couldn't have managed without Steve, Bev & Tom, stepping in to 'bring everything together' at the last minute - while i was rushing about like a headless chicken!  Lots of laughter and of course dressing up...from Danny and Steve! 

It has been a great session, with our two new students, David and Jon fitting in really well with the group.  I have really enjoyed the two sessions a week with school children, from Paternoster, and a small autistic unit from Christchurch School in Cheltenham. 

A big thank you to all my volunteer helpers - i could not manage without you, and i hope everyone has a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year.

We start again on Monday 9 January 2012 - anybody interested in coming out to see us - do get in touch via email.

See you Soon!

Nearly there!

We had a successful Christmas Fair last weekend - sorry it's taken me most of the week to recover!  Our stall took over £100, selling 6 dozen mince pies made by Bev & Simon, and decorations made by Paternoster & Christchurch School, and our students.  We have a few items left, and so i'm going to take a stall at the North Cerney School Christmas Fair next Saturday (10th Dec)

Down on the farm, we have been making lists for the next session - thinking about what we would 'like' and what we 'need' to do.   General tidying up of all the raised beds, and the poly tunnel - amazingly our broad beans are through outside - it's been such strange weather! 

We had a visit from the Horse Dentist last wednesday, which the students all found gripping - Rupert had a magnetic torch attached to the headcollar, so when he winched his mouth open we could see right up to the back of Manny's mouth - so many teeth up there!  In the afternoon, we had the Chiropracter to see Manny - so he should be really sorted now!

We go into our last week now, so we are having our 'Christmas Lunch', sorting the Poly Tunnel, and raised beds and animals, and getting ready for Christmas!
