We are thrilled that the farm is open again, it has been a tough year and without your support we would not have been in a position to reopen, we cannot thank you enough!
You may have noticed during your recent visits that we have yet to open our playground, we know that the area is extremely popular with families visiting the farm and we would love to be able to open it as soon as we can!
Unfortunately, long periods of lockdown and staff furlough have left the playground overgrown and the ground surface uneven, with some of the play equipment beginning to rot. We have been able to fund some replacement equipment, but replacing the ground surface is well beyond our means.
To re-open the playground we dearly need your support to finance a new playing surface. We’d like your help to raise £15K to fund a long lasting wet pour solution – providing a very safe ground for children to play on as it absorbs impact.
Oscar’s playground was built in memory of Oscar Aston, a little boy from Wimbledon who passed away in 2012 from an undiagnosed heart defect. Oscar was a frequent visitor to the farm with his family, who helped to raise £10,000 to transform an underused part of the farm into a fun and educational area for children to enjoy.
Complete with farm-themed play equipment, Oscar’s playground is a vital facility for the local community and we would love to be able to open it up again as soon as possible.
