Dear Friends of Clinks Care Farm,

All Friends are invited to join a work party at the farm this coming Saturday, 29 July.

A group led by Doeke, the farmer, will be pulling ragwort from 10.00 to 15.00. Ragwort is a weed which is poisonous to livestock and the farm does not have the resources to carry out this essential task of removal during the working week.

We will meet at the farm at 10.00. If you haven’t been to the farm before, directions are here. Gloves and tools will be provided.

If you are able to make it for all or part of the day, you will enjoy a few hours in the fresh air and the beautiful Norfolk countryside, as well as helping Clinks Care Farm with a really important summer job. We hope to see as many of you as possible!

Many thanks and best wishes,

Hugh Jones

Chair, Friends of Clinks Care Farm
