We are pleased to announce that we have just joined COUNTRYMEN UK and will be looking to set up a group at the farm as soon as possible.
Their mission is that all men, regardless of their mobility or cognitive levels, are given the opportunity to participate in healthy, active and social activities in a safe and supported countryside or farm environment to the benefit of their physical and mental wellbeing.
You can find out more by visiting their website at www.countrymenuk.org or by clicking on their logo on the left.
Quiz night's are going amazingly well and via the raffle they have raised nearly
£700 for Animal Antiks .
However, there is still time to join our team, or get yourself a team together and head down to the Honey Bee for a fun evening which has the added bonus of supporting us as well!
CHARITY QUIZ NIGHT'S

On Saturday 25th May we held our first fundraising walk around the farm.
The weather was kind and we had a lovely stroll around the farm with lots of the animals. As usual the alpacas went into the pond and then followed that with a dust bath. The donkeys joined us for the first time and then we headed back to the farm for tea and cakes. In total we raised around £400 for the charity.
We will be holding other walks over the summer, get in touch if you would like to be notified of the date (also see our events page for more details)
KIDS BORED OVER SUMMER?
Why not challenge them to do some jobs and raise some money so they can join a walk.
Let us know they are working hard and we can look to see when they can come along for a walk

BOOK LAUNCH - BOOK LAUNCH - BOOK LAUNCH
The book launch of 'Happiness For Beginners' by Carole Matthews - the brilliant, brand-new book by this much-loved best-selling local author, took place at WaterstonesMK in Milton Keynes on 21st February.
It was a great evening with lots of people turning up to get their copies signed and hear about our connection with the book . Carole also read extracts and there was a guest appearance by Paul Eccentric (best known as half of the comedic beat poetry act The Antipoet, who performed some of the poems from the book , including 'Save the Farm'.
Thanks goes to all the people who donated to ANIMAL ANTIKS on the night and to her many followers who are donating via the various links Carole is posting.
- THANK YOU - THANK YOU - THANK YOU
Just before Christmas we received an unusual donation. KEE Services, based in Aston Clinton donated some fiberglass Wastewater Treatment Plant Covers.
I'm sure we are going to enjoy making outdoor shelters for the animals to protect them from the rain and wind this winter.
