VISITORS from Galloway’s Society for the Blind spent their third activity day at Gazegill Organic Farm, at Rimington.

Activities during their visit included continuing the board walk for trampers and walkers as well as dry stone walling. One group helped clear a fallen tree from a watercourse and made a bug hotel with the smaller branches and twigs.

Following lunch, activities were brought to a close and visitors had the chance to experience tractor driving on the farm. Lynn Garside, the group co-ordinator commented: “While undertaking activities here on the farm our participants can experience a sense of freedom while giving something back. Everyone worked very hard and some playtime for the guide dogs was a welcome distraction.”

The group intend to return in the New Year to make sausages and hand churn butter.
