The Sunshine Centre for Therapeutic Riding 's Dog Show

On Sunday The Orchard was pleased to play host to The Sunshine Centre for Therapeutic Riding 's Dog Show.

 There were classes for everyone from puppies to veterans, companions to working terriers and all types of dogs in between including prettiest bitch and most handsome dog.

 There were so many lovely dogs there that the judges must have had a hard time choosing!

The weather was fabulous, warm and sunny, The Orchard proved the ideal venue for a dog show being able to provide our canine competitors with plenty of much needed shade under the apple trees.

Competitors and spectators alike had a lovely time and The Sunshine Centre for Therapeutic Riding raised £160.91 towards their activities.

  The Sunshine Centre for Therapeutic Riding CIC is a not for profit organisation that offers therapeutic riding and riding theraphies and pet assisted learning. They are the only practioners in the East of England accredited and registered to deliver Rupert Issacsons Horseboy method- Autism Camps and play days.

Open Farm Sunday 8th June

We're open for Open Farm Sunday with guided tours of our 100 year old apple orchard and apple juice tasting. Tours are at 10.30 and 2.30 and our tea room and farm shop will be open 10-4.

Open Farm Sunday is a fantastic project which has seen hundreds of farmers across the UK opening up their farm for one Sunday each year since 2006! It is a fantastic opportunity for everyone, young and old, to discover at first hand what it means to be a farmer.

Take time to listen to the birds, soak up the scenery and really get in touch with the land that feeds us. So come and feed your senses on Open Farm Sunday.
