A worldwide accolade for our farm

Our very own Newham Grange Farm has been named as a 2020 Traveller’s Choice Winner by Tripadvisor! From feeding the animals to playing in the new play zones, the farm has never been more popular.

The accolade from Tripadvisor is given when attractions get consistently positive reviews from the public. The farm’s customer experience and customer service have come out on top, and many families commented on the affordable entry price, the farm’s easy to navigate layout and the seasonal events; as just some of the great reasons to visit the farm.

Did you know the farm is back open with Covid 19 measures in place? You can still enjoy a trip to Newham Grange even though things are looking a little different. If you’re planning a visit soon, don’t forget to leave a review on the Tripadvisor page or the Facebook page.

Mela goes digital!

Middlesbrough Mela has gone digital for 2020! The giant celebratory event that was planned for this year to celebrate the Mela turning 30 has been delayed until next year, but you can still get involved with loads of Mela-inspired interactive fun and games via the brand new Mela website.

Thanks to Arts Council, Mela now has an interactive website that has plenty for all ages to get involved with, and the good news is that the activities will be available all year online, so you can keep going back to them whenever you want to!

The highlight of this year’s digital Mela is Sara – a beautiful children’s story about hope and love that has been written and created just for this year’s Mela by local artists. Sara tells the story of a little tortoise who goes on an adventure to find her lost friend. There’s some twists and turns along the way, but her animal friends are there to help her.

Visit their brand new website where you can also get involved with mask making, music making, family yoga, and loads more.
