Nothing to do with writing but...
if you live within reach of N Devon or are off on holiday there
and have or know of children or young people with special needs or disabilities
take a look at a recently-opened facility
www.appletreefarmservices.co.uk

    I’m so excited by this, a venture our son and his wife undertook having seen how much interacting with animals helped their little daughter who was born with a form of cerebral palsy called hemiplegia.
    They want others to benefit from what they’ve learnt.
    Having undertaken lots of training and stocked up 9 acres with adorable breeding alpacas, sheep, pigs, chickens, ducks and some smaller ‘petting’ animals, plus a classroom, toilet, play area etc
    now they can offer:

     - One-to-one or group therapy sessions
    -Therapeutic farming days
    - Animal-assisted Intervention
    - Holiday Farming experience for city kids
    - Alpaca Experiences
    - Party venue for hire
    - Makaton friendly and accessible venue

 They have a selection of party packages available that include the hire  of our Barn Room, kitchen and play area as well as optional Meet and  Greet the farm animals.
