Longmead Farm Friday 28 August

We are having a day visit to Longmead Farm on Friday August 28th. This day trip is being sponsored by JPMorgan based in Bournemouth. Families have been down to the farm before and have always had great fun taking part in the various activities – both outdoors with the animals and indoors doing crafty things.
