Spring newsletter
2014
Spring is always a busy time of
year on the farms.
Spring bulbs are now looking
glorious and the children are
planting seeds, ready for the
growing season. The animals are enjoying the first signs of fresh grass and longer
days.
The farms are busy with animal births, too. At Nethercott we are hatching goslings
after an incubator was donated earlier in the year in memory of one of our most
loyal supporters, Peter Bell. The children will enjoy looking after the geese at all
stages of their development.
The fields at Treginnis are all activity, as spring brings an abundance of lambs.
Schools have been there every step of the way, from birth onwards, helping to
feed them, ensuring they are all healthy and watching them bouncing around.
At Wick Court, the annual Wassail marked the start of the year and a great time
was had by all. As well as the arrival of spring lambs, Wick Court saw the first
calving from their small loan herd. Children from a school in Catford watched as
John and Mel expertly helped the cow produce a fine, healthy calf.
Our alumni have been active this Spring as well. Sally visited Nethercott as a child
in 2002 - with her primary school from Middlesex - and is now working on a farm.
She ordered herself a new Farms for City Children t-shirt in preparation for the
lambing season. She, too, has a busy time ahead!
We have also been working hard on the launch of our new website. We still have
the same web address, it is a great place to catch up with all of the farm news,
fundraising news, events and much more!

Canonbury Primary School wrote a blog during their recent week at
Treginnis. Here are our favourite quotes that put a smile on our faces:
“I’ve loved every minute, and this minute right now it the best.”
“I love the goats. They are soft and friendly and I stroked them and
milked them.”
“Children came running into the boot room at the end of their shift
bursting with facts and beaming smiles!”
Children have a great time baking
at our farms so we thought we
would share Wick Court's bread
roll recipe. Perfect for your bacon
butty!

Ros walked the twelve bridges of London to celebrate
her birthday and raise money for Farms for City
Children. She raised an amazing £955 and had a brilliant
time. With friends and family supporting her, Ros even
walked back home (donning one of the best lamby hats
we've seen for a long time!).
It is the season of births, new beginnings and some endings, too. We wish Ana
Green all the very best as she moves on from her post at Treginnis after a
productive two years in charge. Ana introduced some fantastic new ideas,
including the John Muir Award, which is all about exploring the wild landscape
of the Pembrokeshire coast. As soon as she arrived, Ana rolled up her sleeves
to get cooking with the children and, to the delight of her cooks, organised a Before Christmas, The Grosvenor Group held a
‘Grosvenor’s Got Talent’ night in aid of Farms for City

After more than ten years working for this fantastic charity, I am also moving members of the War Horse cast and some of the Farms
on to new and exciting challenges. It has been a pleasure and an honour to for City Children team. Joey from War Horse made an
work with the charity’s staff, farmer partners and Trustees; I stand in awe of amazing guest appearance too.
the skilled and dedicated teachers that accompany the children to the farms.
The richest rewards, though, have always been in the smiles and enthusiasm of
the children as they set about their work on the farms.
