News UK get a taste of the outdoors at Grange Farm.

Published 2nd December 2016

 

On Thursday 1st December, members of the News UK headed to Grange Farm for a day of country pursuits. 

On arrival, guests from both Peterborough and London ventured into the lakeside marquee and were served a selection of hot beverages whilst being divided into three teams. Following a quick safety briefing from the Grange Farm team, it was then revealed that the activities that group were to participate in throughout the course of the day were archery and axe throwing, clay pigeon shooting and off-road driving.  Excited guests made their way out to their first station, to be coached in all the challenging disciplines. 
The first group were taken to experience the ancient arts of Archery & Axe throwing, with scores being recorded for both the highest male and female archer. The second group jumped into our all-terrain 4x4 vehicles and shown how to manoeuvre the vehicles over the hills and hollows of Grange Farm. The final group were escorted to the scenic shoot ground, where they were taught to master the art of clay pigeon shooting, whilst being served traditional shooting tipples and snacks. 
On completion of this hour-long session, all guests made their way back to the lakeside marquee where a two-course hot lunch was being served by the in house catering team. The lunch consisted of baked potatoes served with either Chili Con Carne or Thai Chicken Curry and a selection of cold sides. The dessert consisted of a delicious Fruit Crumble or traditional Bakewell Tart with custard or ice cream. 
Guests returned to complete two further afternoon sessions on rotation around the different activities before returning to the marquee, to be greeted with Prosecco. Guests could order drinks over the bar whilst prizes were presented to the most successful guests of the day. 
On close of the event, taxis arrived at Grange Farm to collect all the guests and ensure they got home safely.
