Botton Village opens for a day of family fun

BOTTON village has a host of family fun activities lined up as it prepares to open up the whole village as part of an annual event.

This year’s open day has all the fun of a country fair in the Camphill community. From sheep sheering demonstrations and hay-cart rides, to craft stalls and a coconut shy, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Local musicians and bands will be performing and you can also enjoy the gardens and the scenery of the village, and buy plants and herbs.

The summer fair at Botton Village Steiner School will be open for visitors to take a look around. Home baked breads, pizzas and cakes will be on sale and villagers will be heating up the BBQ cooking organic meats.Children’s entertainment will include treasure hunts, a zip line and a puppet show.

Events kick off on Sunday 3 July from 11am-5pm. Admission is free. All money raised at the open day will support the work of Botton Village, which homes one of the 11 centres of the Camphill Village Trust LTD.
