EAST Hampshire District Council’s Rural Areas Play Project (RAPP) van and Get Activ8’d schemes worked feverishly during the summer holidays to keep children busy.

On August 17, RAPP enlisted the help of some furry friends to provide entertainment for youngsters at Greatham Primary School.

The Mill Farm Cottage Experience, from Holybourne, gave children the chance to learn about, and play with, a wide variety of animals.

Mill Farm Cottage Experience staff visit schools, playgroups, parties and other events to provide a hands-on learning experience for all ages. They also teach techniques such as wool spinning, milking, egg candling and self-sufficiency.
