What Makes A Winner?

What makes a winner?! Suzanne and Family from What’s On 4 found out during their visit to ‘Fishers Farm Park’ Image– winners of the What’s On 4 Junior award ‘Best Family Day Out’ in 2013!

The Farm Park is well signposted and easily found, surrounded by acres of Sussex countryside and very accessible from surrounding counties Surrey and Hampshire.  We received a very warm welcome at the ticket desk and lots of information on all there was to do plus the special timetabled extra activities. It was then I realised we should have arrived earlier!

ImageFisher’s Farm Park is just full to bursting with attractions, activities, features and fun. We visited with Ruby (aged 4) and George (aged 8) and they were non-stop all day – horse riding, climbing walls, small animal petting, zip wires (with a handy toddler version!), water-play, paddle boats, trampolines, tractor rides, squirrel scrambles, galleons, mini fairground rides, play areas, massive jumping pillows, mini golf – the list goes on and on. The excitement of the sheep racing will stay with me for some time! Inside was a fab, spacious soft play area with comfy chairs alongside and a great little café for grown-ups needing a sit down!

We visited on an August Sunday but because there’s so much to do and the park is on such big site we hardly had to queue for any activities – unlike other attractions we had visited previously where you can spend the best part of the day in line! There was great picnic areas and cafes and a really nice shop with lots of ‘pocket money’ prices. One element which really made the visit was the atImagetitude of the many staff who were so friendly, helpful and smiley all day – even when it was raining! I don’t know how they did it!

My over-riding impression of Fishers Farm Park is that it’s an attraction run by a very committed, focused team. Secondly that it offers excellent value for money – we didn’t manage to do everything and so my son went back less than a week later to celebrate his birthday!  We are really not surprised that they won the award therefore – it’s an excellent place for all the family – just make sure you go for the whole day – you won’t regret it!

You can see Imagemore at their website here – www.fishersfarmpark.co.uk and they are building even more attractions soon and we’ll be back at half-term for the Halloween special!

You will also find information at BabyExpo on The Children’s Trust – a cause very close to Humphrey’s heart. The Children’s Trust is a wonderful, national charity, based in Tadworth, Surrey which provides care, education and therapy for children with multiple disabilities and complex health needs as well as rehabilitation for children with an acquired brain injury. They offer a unique combination of services helping hundreds of children, young people and their families from across the UK, rebuilding shattered lives and they rely on voluntary donations from supporters like YOU. To see more on the wonderful work they do just watch this short film – ‘Three Reasons to Support The Children’s Trust’ below:

Every year, Humphrey’s Corner and The Children’s Trust invite nurseries, pre-schools and clubs up and down the country to be part of Humphrey’s PJ Week to raise much needed funds for this very deserving cause. For a voluntary £2 donation, children (and staff!) get to wear their favourite sleepwear and enjoy Humphrey themed activities, games and stories, all provided through the special fundraising pack which includes posters, activity booklets, stickers, a certificate for each child, a ‘Humphrey’s Special Day’ story booklet, party hats and bunting!

This year, PJ Week will take place nationwide from 8-12 October and, as the event grows in popularity & success, there’s even  more to celebrate! 2012 sees PJ Week’s 5th anniversary, the event has been shortlisted as a finalist for the Best Licensed Marketing Communication Campaign AND CBEEBIES presenter, Sid Sloane will be wearing his pyjamas to support this great cause! Sid explains

“Humphrey’s Pyjama Week is a fun opportunity for nurseries, schools and playgroups to raise money for a very important charity that helps children who are poorly or who need special care… I am so excited to be supporting this awesome cause and can’t wait to hear about all your events!’

So don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to raise money and have a lot of fun with Humphrey’s Corner and The Children’s Trust. To find out more or to register visit: www.thechildrenstrust.org.uk/humphrey or email humphrey@thechildrenstrust.org.uk
