It feels like Spring is in the air. We’ve had our first lambs born of the year, the daffodils are blooming and I’ve spent a couple of days sowing seeds and working outside in the sunshine.
It reminded me of last summer, my memories of which – apart from the heat – was of many visitors returning – perhaps several times in the summer but also from previous years, and their joy at rediscovering Lower Poulza.
Since then we’ve planted more spring bulbs across the campsite, wallflowers at the entrance of the toilet block and we spent a sunny few hours planting a rose garden in memory of dad. The sheep have been in lawn mowing and the cows came into the shed at the end of November. The flock of chickens have increased as I rescued some chickens through the Hen Welfare Trust and they are now happily running around the farm with the others.
In 2019 we have 3 rallies planned:
- Suntreckers 6th – 13th June. Please book directly with Suntrekers.
- SWBN: 21st – 23rd June. Please book direct with Lower Poulza stating you are with SWBN.
- Suntreckers 29th August – 5th September. Please book directly with Suntrekers.
For the first time ever a South West Skinny – a mass public skinny dip raising money for MIND – will be held at Summerleaze Beach, Bude in May. To find out more see their website www.swskinny.org.uk
We now have a Facebook group which you can join to keep up to date with news from Lower Poulza Post.
Looking forward to seeing you this Season,
Brilliant to see so many joining us here at Lower Poulza enjoying the sun this last few weeks. It’s been lovely to see so many faces, some new, some old and some returning after jet setting and gallivanting for a few years. The site is looking beautiful (although I admit I am bias), thanks to the brilliant team here all of whom have worked really hard after the long wet winter to help us make the most of this glorious sunshine.
We’ve had two rallies so far this year, both successfully run by the Suntrekers and by BN South West. My thanks to those who did all the organising. The BN rally made the front page of the BN website. If you’d like to read the article the link is here – www.bn.org.uk/news/news/cornish-cream-the-south-west-enjoys-a-hot-rally-r478
There’s a second Suntrekers rally planned for the end of August and we’re hoping the turn out will be just as good.
We’ve had two new editions to the farm, with two calves (a boy and a girl) being born. The first I remember in about 20 years, and our sow – Prim – is also expecting. In all this good weather we’ve literally been ‘making hay whilst the sunshine shines’ and smell drifting across the fields is amazing.
If you want to book, even if it’s a last minute decision making the most of the sunshine, please do give us a ring or email, and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Looking forward to seeing you soon,
