National trust to host Farmfest
Beautiful open spaces, farm fields and a historic building will be on show at the Bermuda National Trust’s second Farmfest event on Saturday.
The free family friendly event is due to take place at the Trust’s protected ten-acre property of Devondale on South Road, Devonshire, from 10am to 4pm.
BNT president Alana Anderson said: “We’ll be hosting game stalls, a haunted house, arts and crafts, food stalls, tractor rides, three-legged races, a fortune teller, pony rides, a Halloween costume parade, a scarecrow competition and much more.
“I also want to thank Debs and Dave Norman, Devondale’s tenants, who have done an amazing job preparing for the day.”
The trust will be drawing its annual raffle at 3pm. Prizes include a two-seater electric Bermy 200 car, $5,000 worth of travel vouchers.
Raffle tickets are being sold on Friday at the Hamilton MarketPlace and on Saturday at the A1 at Collector’s Hill. Tickets are also being sold at businesses and restaurants and by BNT members. The draw will take place at 3pm.
Tickets will be available for games, food, stalls and rides and there will also be plants and baked goods for sale.
Parking is available at Lagoon Drive, Mayflower and Saltus Cavendish School with a shuttle bus running every 10 to 15 minutes, starting at 9.45am at the Saltus Cavendish parking lot.
BNT is looking for volunteers for a number of activities — students will be able to earn community hours if they do so.
