Country File star to appear at charity family fun day in Fenland

TV star Adam Henson will make a guest appearance at a charity family fun day in Fenland next month.

The Country File and Lambing Live presenter will be judging the fancy dress competition and mingling with the crowds at the event at Woodhouse Farm Park in Friday Bridge.

The day, on Monday May 2, organised by the farm park and Wisbech Rotary Club will be raising money for Help for Heroes and East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

Falconry encounters, storytelling, dancing girls, fairground stalls, pig racing, pony rides and sheep shearing are just a number of the exciting activities planned alongside the usual animal attractions at the farm.

Kim Flint, Woodhouse Park Farm owner, said: “The charities Help for Heroes and EACH are close to many people’s hearts and the prizes donated for the raffle have been incredibly generous

“Draw tickets are �1 in advance with the first prize being �250. However, in my opinion the second prize is even better as a kind businessman has offered a plane fight over the Fens.

“The event is growing by the day because so many people want to be involved, and all the animals are producing lambs, piglets, chicks etc so they are doing their bit to make it a wonderful day.
