Springtime Cheer At Wasing

The familiar sounds of couples celebrating their wedding nuptials with us at Wasing has been temporarily replaced by a different kind of new beginnings on the estate this spring.

Despite the disappointment of not being able to welcome our brides and grooms at this time, we still have a lot to be thankful for. The colourful spring blooms fill us with hope and cheer and the birth of many calves and lambs have breathed new life into the farm. Plus, some of our team have been keeping busy supporting the local community with essential food deliveries.

New life at Wasing

Our Farm Manager, Nick Corp, reports an eventful time on the farm planting spring crops and welcoming new residents. “Our cows are calving and the sheep are lambing. Half of our pedigree Sussex cattle herd are expecting this year, and we have had nine calves born so far this spring and are still expecting another 22 over the coming two months,” explains Nick who says its nearing the end of the lambing season and hundreds of lambs are running around the parkland.

Wasing in bloom

There has been no rest either for our gardeners who have also been working flat out manicuring the many beautiful borders, beds and lawns.

The venue looks stunning and the flowers are in full of bloom, the grass is as green as can be and the gardens are all prepared for when guests are able to return to celebrate and enjoy the venue.

 

Supporting the local community

Fishers of Newbury supply us with fruit and vegetables for our many weddings and events. Now our team, who would ordinarily be looking after the brides and grooms on their special day, are taking orders from residents in the local community and putting together the boxes. A trio of volunteers including our Parish Rector, Jane Manley, are delivering the groceries to the doorstep of up to 60 homes in Aldermaston and Brimpton.

Wishing you all good health at this difficult time.
