Two farmers crisp factory visit. The young people will also have the opportunity to help with the cooking of their lunch. We will also be enjoying a fun tractor ride/driving experience (subject to age - 13yrs).

Free bookings do not require refunds but as places are limited, please cancel if you cannot attend so that your place can be offered to someone else.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
