A Staffordshire Moorlands business is launching a new attraction for the area this weekend.

Beaver Hall, in Bradnop, will be opening a Farm Park & Nature Trail at midday on Sunday, August 3.

The new attraction is set in more than 60 acres, and has recently undergone a planting project of 12,000 various trees.

Ian Lawson, chairman of Staffordshire County Council, supported by Leek Town Mayor Keith Harrison, will be officially opening the new attraction.

The day will feature free activities such as a bouncy slide, face painting, children's pony rides and a prize draw.

Other activities and games alongside a barbecue will also be on offer. The Farm Park has a menagerie of animals and special guests for the day will be the meerkats and owls, who will be permanent residents at the venue from September.

The Farm Park & Nature Trail is being formed as a community project and Beaver Hall has teamed up with Support Staffordshire, which is based in Leek, to engage with volunteers to take part in the running the Farm Park & Nature Trail.

The venue is owned by Anne Pearn and David Kinsella.

Anne said: "When we first set up the family business as an equestrian centre over 15 years ago, it was our dream to develop the whole site into a thriving rural business."
