After such a difficult day, it has been so wonderful to read all of your lovely messages and support, so a big thank you to our amazing visitors 🙂
We will do our upmost best to keep you all informed with our developments. Although major damage has been sustained to the Reception Barn, Pedal Tractor/ Craft Barn, Tearooms and Toilets, you will be pleased to know that the Animal Barn (including the Bale Stack, Giant Slide & Bouncy Castles), along with the Outside Play Area and New Picnic Barn have remained undamaged.
It is going to take time to sort everything out, but do not worry Roves Farm will be back open as soon as possible!
Thank you for all of your support,
The Burr Family 🙂
