Family fun at annual farm fayre

DUCK herding, dog agility, and mountain biking demonstrations are all among the attractions at a Sheffield fayre tomorrow.

The Whirlow Hall Farm Trust is preparing a day of family fun for its biggest fundraising event of the year.

There will be craft stalls and farmers’ market goods, acoustic music, archery, and a cycling challenge.

To tickle the tastebuds there will be a barbecue and hog roast.

Visitors can quench their thirst with real ales from the Thornbridge brewery.

Other highlights include the farm’s first ever horticultural show, with the winner of the Carrs Silver Challenge receiving a silver plate from Lord Mayor Coun Sylvia Dunkley.

Event organiser Lisa Clowes said: “We’re really excited about the fayre this year. It’s bigger and better than ever and we have loads of really exciting things to do, with many free activities for children and a variety of entertainment.

“Visitors can really make a day of it.”

The Whirlow Trail Challenge and three kilometre fun run are also taking place tomorrow, priced £10 and £2 for entrants. Entry into the trail challenge - a 10k across trails, grassland, roads and moorland - gives free entry into the fayre.

Entry to the fayre is free for children, and £6 for adults. The event will run from 10am to 4pm..
