After being contacted by our broker Mark Richard Insurance, about the Aviva Community Awards 2012, the Friends went about creating and submitting our entry. To our surprise and delight were shortlisted for the 'Enhancing the Local Environment' section and invited to the presentation day in Leeds. Several levels of prizes were on offer, from £1,000.00 up to a wopping £15,000.00! To say we were successfull is a bit of an understatement as the Friends walked away with the top prize of £15,000.00! This will make a massive difference to our ability to increase the security and comfort at the Barn Café, which in turn will ensure that all the profits from the café go back into the farm, instead of repairing any damage. Our thanks go to Mark Richards Insurance, Aviva and of course Chris, for travelling up to Leeds but more importantly coming back to the farm with the money!
