Fun at Barleylands AGM
Barleylands Farm was the venue for this years Annual General Meeting where 25 families gathered to enjoy a wonderful buffet lunch before the meeting was held. After 6 years as Chairman, Greg Stuttle has decided to step down and swap roles with Vice Chairman Paul Smith who now takes the lead role. Greg has worked tirelessly for the charity throughout this time and formed very close bonds with the DSA in particular. Greg was presented with a gift as a show of appreciation for all his fine work and bouquet of flowers was presented to Sam his ever supportive Wife.
After the meeting we were all guided into the farm by Deborah from Barleylands and taken to a Birds of Prey display where Falcons and Owls were displayed in their glory, this was followed by feeding of the farm animals, tractor rides, and large amounts of playing in the variety of play areas available, and that was just the grown ups….
Thanks go out to Stuart Humphreys for organising the event and for Barleylands Farm for the use of their great facilities provided.
