We had some fantastic entries for our competition to design a house for our most handsome ram, Major Mustard. Our winner created a wonderful design full of bright colours just like our rainbow sheep. You can see the design on our facebook page and we’ll be sharing it on here in the next few days so do check back to see it!
The design was immediately sent off to local artist, Rachel Carter to help inspire her to create ‘The Majors House’ in the woodland garden. Rachel joined us on Monday for a three day workshop to start building and installing the new house so please do come along and see what we are getting up to or if you are feeling creative come and get hands on and help us to build it!
Also why not join us at 11.30 on Friday 31st August for Pimms and canapés in the woodland garden. We are celebrating completing the first phase of the woodland garden restoration with an official opening of the area. The garden team will be there to talk to you about the work and the new projects coming up in the park and garden.
Last year we commissioned Whichford Pottery to copy one of our 200 year old pots. This pot had a wonderful Tudor rose design on the front. We loved it so much that we decided to use the rose mould to create our very own Charlecote pot. To celebrate this we will be starting a new competition on Friday 31st and you could win your very own Charlecote pot – look out for the posters on site and pick up an entry form from one of our shops.
