has now started
from 1 - 3 pm
We are part of the COUNTRYMEN UK network and are setting up a club for Men over 50 years old. It will be an opportunity to come along to the farm for a couple of hours, get involved with some of the jobs around the farm, with the animal care, enjoy some gardening or just sit and chat with like minded men.
Cuppa & a chat
........ or just enjoying the fresh air and the company!

Link to Newsletter produced for Outreach Project in July 2020
With some funding from Countrymen UK, this initiative has been operating nationally with the farms in the Countrymen UK Network since April. Here at Animal Antiks we joined in for ten weeks from July 2020.
The objective was for the Network to make contact with organisations and individuals in their areas and to provide support services and activity-based stimulation to men with long-term health conditions and their family carers during lockdown.
In our area we made contact with a large number of local parish councils and groups who support men in this age bracket. A newsletter was widely distributed prompting both the work of the project, Animal Antiks and the future of our Countrymen club.
