Cogges Farm is opening Saturday 31 March: that’s tomorrow! The attractions available include the working farm site, a petting area, the manor house and a beautiful newly refurbished coffee shop. And most importantly, this season they’ve got animals! Here’s some footage of the rabbits and piglets:
… but there are also sheep, pygmy goats, chickens, ducks and guinea pigs.
The next meeting of the Public Halls Committee is on Tuesday 13th March.
Prompted by the closure of the Corn Exchange, the Town Council are still accepting submissions to the Public Halls Consultation. You can participate either by using this online form, or by downloading this form and printing it off.
It’s also the Witney Annual Town Meeting on Wednesday 14th March, 7:30pm in the Langdale Hall. We’re hoping there’ll be tea and cakes!
7pm Tuesday 13th March at the Town Hall.
Do you like to eat locally produced, healthy, tasty food? A new season of food markets begins this weekend at Cogges Manor Farm. Starting on Sunday 4th March, the food markets will take place on the first and third Sunday of every month and run from 10am to 3pm.
The great thing about food markets is that you can buy direct from the people who make the produce, whether that’s meat from Foxbury Farm, jams from Well Preserved or freshly baked bread from The College Loaf.
Although the farm itself isn’t yet open to visitors (that’s happening on March 31st), the on-site cafe will be open to anyone wanting to enjoy refreshments while browsing. Entrance to the food markets is free.
