MANOR FARM PARK

As has been our habit for the past several years, we design and  sell our annual FoMFP Calendar; this year, because it has been so popular in the past, we are again using the A4 style with pictures of the park for each month of the year, with room below to add your daily reminders.

Also again, if you order before 10th November 2017, you pay only £6.00: order later than that, and you pay £8.00: still a very, very good price for a lovely calendar.

If you would like to purchase one, or more as they make wonderful Christmas presents, call our Secretary on 07845 565710 or 0121 476 6329 and ask him to order one for you [no answer? leave your contact details and he promises to get back to you asap]. You can also go to the Contact Us page on this website, here, and leave a message that includes your own contact details of course. Furthermore, you can ask any other member of the Committee and even email the Secretary directly.

Remember though, save yourself £2.00 by ordering before 10th November, because after that fateful date, the price goes up from £6.00 to £8.00 for each calendar.

We will be back before Christmas with more news.

Stay safe and be well.

The Barn:

Now

In order to keep up to date with developments regarding the Cadbury Barn and what we are doing, please go here

The Barn:

Then

Oddly enough, right from when it was erected in 1896, the Cadbury Barn has never been used as a barn. The main purpose of the building was to entertain children from the inner City who were less fortunate and had never experienced the countryside.

Every weekend, right up until WWII, hundreds of children would have fun on the farm and learn about the countryside; then, in the late afternoons they would enjoy a feast of sandwiches and cakes in the Barn, creating lots of noise and laughter, to the delight of George and Elizabeth.

At the outbreak of the Second World War, the barn and the surrounding buildings became a training centre for the Friends Ambulance Unit, which you can read more about here.

The Barn:

Future

The original Barn building, being destroyed by fire earlier this year means there is not, in reality, a future for the Barn at all. However, the Stakeholder Group continue to meet and plan for a future that will include, if not the original and unique Barn being brought back into community use, then a reasonable facsimilie being utilized that will include parts of the original witin its construction. Nothing can be confirmed, one way or another at this time, there is still a lot of planning and preparation to be done.

One thing that can be confirmed though, is our need of funds and you can help in any number of ways: join the FoMFP, which is only £2.00/year per person; buy our calendar; come to our events and have a go on the Tombola, make donations for the free refreshments and/or buy a cuddly hand made toy. You can even help right now by visiting this article and following the instructions.
