All the fun of a farm at Oaken Holt’s Annual Summer Event

On Saturday 16thJuly, Oaken Holt held our eagerly awaited for annual Summer event and this year, we chose a farmyard theme. The day was a great success with lots of fun, laughter and enjoyment by all who attended.

We welcomed farms2ewe, with their animals, offering the opportunity for our residents and guests the opportunity of close interaction with the amiable farm animals they brought with them. All of their animals are well trained, friendly and used to being handled so enabled many of the people on the day the chance to touch and stroke live farm animals and meet real farmers, sometimes for the first time.

We enjoyed a lovely Summers afternoon, with Pimms and strawberries and cream. Relatives, friends and residents of Oaken Holt all enjoyed a picnic in our lovely grounds and appreciated the lovely view. We are very proud of our beautiful gardens and parklands at Oaken Holt set within 23 acres and it was a glorious day befitting this special occasion.

In true Summer Fayre style, we had several stalls including a tombola and residents goods they had made specially for the occasion. We finished the afternoon with ice creams and to top it all off, the afternoon ended with a very big thrill for all when the Red Arrows flew over in formation. What a suitable finish for a great day!
