THE Winter Olympics, which is set to kick-off in China, will be the inspiration behind the next set of fun events at a farm outside Oswestry for half-term.

The Park Hall Countryside Experience, closed since its successful Christmas event, will re-open on Saturday, February 19 for ‘Winter Fun on the Farm.’

Their half term event comes just in time for the arrival of their new baby lambs, which visitors can meet, along with their goats, rabbits, ponies, guinea pigs and parrot.

Richard Powell, joint owner/director at Park Hall, said they will be celebrating February’s Olympic Games in Beijing with their own sporting fun.

He said: “Imagine you’re hurtling down a mountain on a luge on our drop slide, try some curling in the barn or pose for a photo on our podium – let your little ones enjoy something a little bit different down on the farm this half term.

“The mascot for this year’s Winter Olympics is an adorable Panda, which has inspired our very own bear trail, with eight different species of bear to find around the farm.

"Any child who completes the trail will take home a medal and there will also be a special visit from a Chinese dragon."

Access to the indoor and outdoor play areas, tractor rides, animals, role play village, sand and water play, music room and science area will all be included in the ticket cost.

Park Hall’s ‘Winter Fun on the Farm’ event will run during half term from Saturday, February 19 to Sunday, February 27.
