SUMMER READING CHALLENGE 2018

If you have a child aged 4-11 years, look out for the invitations going out through schools for them to join Mischief Makers, our Summer Reading Challenge for 2018.

Children need to be library members, then sign up in any West Berks library to receive their ‘treasure map’ reading log. Over the summer, they can collect stickers and other incentives for borrowing and reading library books – at least six books by the end of September to receive a certificate, golden medal and voucher for a free child visit to Beale Wildlife Park, near Pangbourne.

The challenge is produced by The Reading Agency and delivered by libraries across the country. This summer we’re excited to be working with Beano magazine in their 80th anniversary year, so watch out for Dennis, Gnasher and friends as children collect their stickers and solve their treasure clues.

The Summer Reading challenge is endorsed by the Department for Education. It’s FREE to take part. for more information and to get started, please ask in your local library.

Sheepdrove Farm and Eco Centre is delighted to invite you to come and tour our venue and facilities, meet our team and some of our recommended suppliers.

About our facilities

Tucked away in the heart of an area of outstanding natural beauty, yet only minutes from the M4, Sheepdrove is an inspiring canvas upon which to create a truly unique day.

Our team are passionate about bringing your dream to life; whether you want a small and intimate handfasting, somewhere quiet and secluded on the farm, or a large and lively production, we can make it happen. We offer one day’s exclusive use of our venue to ensure your special day is truly yours.

We know that catering is an extremely important part of your special day, therefore, we work with a handpicked selection of outside catering companies that sustainably, ethically and locally source all produce to meet your needs; organic and non-organic. Alternatively, you can pick your own. Our couples deal directly with their chosen caterer with regards to menus, costings, dietaries etc. Just like our team, they are all very passionate, welcoming and more than happy to help. Here at Sheepdrove, we have our own fully licensed bar. Please click here to see our bar tariff.

We are licenced for civil ceremonies in two of our rooms, the cathedral-like vaulted Oak room and the light and airy Beech room, or alternatively you can simply hold your wedding reception with us. We have a variety of other rooms and quirky, unusual spaces to inspire you, including a circular tower like room and a boathouse by the lake.

Room specifications; maximum capacity, dimensions and facilities.

The rooms have been designed with acoustics in mind, and are perfect for live music, whether that’s a string quartet during arrival drinks, or a rock band for the evening celebrations!

We can seat a maximum of 150 people for the wedding breakfast and can accommodate up to 170 for your evening reception.
