Forge Mill Farm comes to Lightwoods – fun for children this weekend

Published 16th March 2022

Come along to Lightwoods Park and House this coming weekend as the team from Forge Mill Farm at Sandwell Valley Country Park ‘bring the farm’ to Bearwood.

It’s a free event from 10am to 3pm on both Saturday (19 March) and Sunday (20 March) as part of the Welcome Back programme. Families can just turn up, no tickets are needed.
 
Farm to Town: Bringing the Farm to You will be tailored towards children and will include an array of farmyard animals, milk demonstrations, talks on the wellbeing of the animals, arts and crafts tents, pizza and pancake making and fun-filled games for all children.
 
Councillor Danny Millard, Sandwell Council’s cabinet member for culture and tourism, said: “This is a great idea from the Sandwell Valley team to bring a flavour of Forge Mill Farm out into the community at Lightwoods Park and House. The event promises to be fun and informative for children and families and it’s ideal to tie in with a weekend shopping trip to Bearwood.” 
 
Lightwoods Park and House is in Adkins Lane, Bearwood, Smethwick, B67 5DP.
 
The Welcome Back Fund is providing councils across England a share of £56 million from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to support the safe return to high streets and help build back better from the pandemic.
