On Saturday, 27th August I had a very excited little boy on my hands. He got to meet that children’s legend that is Little Grey Fergie.
For any of you that live under a bush or don’t have children that find these bizarre creations on You Tube, Little Grey Fergie is a TV show about a tractor that drives around on his own without a driver. He’s magic.
It also has an extremely irritating theme tune, but that seems statutory for children’s programmes, so it seems.
Anyhow, I’ve totally digressed.
We live in Warwickshire, which has its major advantages. We aren’t really that far from anywhere. Cotswold Farm Park is located near Guiting Power in the Cotswolds and is run by Adam Henson of BBC Countryfile fame.
It’s a wonderful little attraction for families of all ages. But of course, particularly great for toddlers and preschool age children. They all love animals, tractors and playgrounds. It’s perfect for them.
Saturday was no exception. Little Grey Fergie came to visit the Farm Park for the weekend and put on regular shows throughout the day.
I’ve got to be honest, I’m not Fergie’s biggest fan, but it was really good. The actors alongside him were brilliant with the kids. The music was familiar and the show itself was well put together. Little legs was totally transfixed for the whole half an hour. He was a little shy when it came to having a photo at the end but I wasn’t going to miss the opportunity of getting a photo for him. So with gentle persuasion and agreeing to wait until everyone else had gone, we got our picture.
We went on to have lunch in the cafe which sits next to the shop. Ah, the shop. Little Grey Fergie merchandise was on sale and we couldn’t not get him a little memento to take home to remember the day.
After lunch we went on to have a slow walk around the rest of the park before we were forced home by a torrential thunderstorm! Thank goodness we got to see Ethan’s beloved Fergie before the rain came!
Overall I was really pleased. Sometimes these things can be a bit of an anti climax but this one really was worth going.
I’ll remember the smile on his face for years to come. All thanks to a magic tractor. Who’d have thought it….
If you fancy a trip to Adam Henson’s Cotswold Farm Park take a look at their website. Enjoy!
