Dogs on a Lead

Many congratulations to this walker who proudly stood for a photograph holding his dog on a really long lead. The ewes and very young lambs are now in the parkland fields and indeed all over the hill, so all dogs should be on a lead. The ewes are easily disturbed by dogs running loose, however 'well behaved' or 'uninterested' pooch is of sheep. Any disturbance can lead to the ewes running off leaving lambs or turning to fight the dog ending up with injuries that might requiring treatment.

On a lighter note, if you want to come up to Park Farm and see for yourself what all of the excitment is about, our annual Farm Lambing Day is rapidly approaching. Tractor rides will leave form the village hall at Overbury on Saturday 29th March from 10am with last one leaving at 3pm. There will also be cookery demonstrations in the village hall, by Mark Devonshire from The Eckington Manor Cookery School. Rod, Paul and Shaun will also be available to talk about the Estates conservation projects and what their jobs entail.
