Pigg’s Playbarn news, Apley Farm Shop

2014-05-03, Second Apley Jousting Fair (32)

Venetia with owl at Apley jousting fair

There’s lots of news to share from Pigg’s Playbarn at Apley Farm Shop (it’s what I call a picnic of news – you can nibble [scan] the bits which interest you the most !):

On Mon 20 & Tues 21 July, a secondhand toy & clothes sale will help raise funds for those caught in the Nepal earthquakes. The Old Vicarage Adventure Centre ( are running a campaign to raise £25,000 for this cause. Donations very welcome ! Vital shelter kits will help thousands of people who have lost their homes following this year’s earthquakes in Nepal.

On these lovely hotter days, The Creamery Café (eat in) & Farm Shop (eat out) can meet all your icecream needs !

The penultimate session of our After School Music Club is this week on Thursdays 9 July, as the summer holidays start after our last session next Thursday 16 July. Pigg’s Playbarn have a great programme of FREE activities throughout the summer holidays. Every Tuesday, 10-12noon get creative with our cardboard box club. Every Wednesday, there are craft activities free with normal Playbarn entry – including paper plate butterflies, egg box bugs & sock puppets. The first & last Wednesdays are devoted to teddy bears’ picnics, to start & finish the holiday. Buy tickets in the Playbarn or call 01925 730 345 option 3.

To kick off the summer holidays in Scotty’s Animal Park, there will be a static display of owls (like this Venetia held at Apley’s 2nd Jousting Fair) in the Animal Park for people to hold, touch & stroke on Tuesday 21st July, 10-4pm. Normal admission prices to Scotty’s Animal Park apply, but there will be no additional charge to see the owls.

If you find the summer holidays & having the children at home all day every day a bit much, then Annie’s Reiki Centre has the answer. She has organised some Yummy Mummy Sooth days on Tuesdays 10-12noon in the Playbarn, offering 10 minute shoulder massages for mothers waiting for their children. Booking is not required. For details, call Annie on 07976 22 69 54 or email
