Derby, United Kingdom, March 13, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Derby College’s Broomfield Hall is opening its doors for a public open day entitled ‘Wellies and Waterproofs’ on Sunday March 20, 10am to 3pm, to give visitors the chance to see the latest facilities for students and the general public.
Facilities open to the public include the Animal Care Centre which houses a wide range of farm and domestic animals as well as exotic species; the Food Hub farm shop and café featuring local produce with advice on hand about growing your own vegetables; the Plant Centre where a wide range of plants are available to buy and the grounds and walled garden featuring students’ work which they will enter into competitions this summer.
The latest facilities to see are the new Chatsworth teaching and learning facilities and the Little Explorers day nursery which is the first in the area to be an outdoor-based Forest School.
Head of Broomfield Hall Louise Curd said: “We usually hold an Open Day in the summer but, due to further work at Broomfield Hall that has had to be postponed.
“We therefore decided that this was a perfect time to open our doors to the public to show them all the exciting new facilities at Broomfield.
“Hopefully visitors will not need their wellies and waterproofs – but you never know!”
