New ‘Detox Delegate Rate’ for 2015

New ‘Detox Delegate Rate’ for 2015


Happy staff are 12% more productive*. Therefore happy, healthy conference delegates will be more productive too!

We have worked closely with our caterers to tailor make a special ‘detox’ delegate package for January and February 2015.

By definition a detox is ‘a period of time where the body is rid of unhealthy substances’. Think super foods at lunchtime and swapping coffee and cake for sumptuous smoothies!

However, detox is not just about the body. With Avon Wildlife Trust’s 250-acre nature reserve on our doorstep, which is a beautiful setting for walks, outside meetings and teambuilding activities, your mind will be taken care of too.

Folly Farm Centre receives life-saving defibrillator device

SOUTH Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SWAST) is pleased to support Folly Farm Centre by installing a defibrillator.

Folly Farm was identified as an ideal location due to its rural location, coupled with the hundreds of wedding guests, conference delegates and school groups that pass through the Centre on a weekly basis. This is in addition to many local people that enjoy walks in Avon Wildlife Trust’s 250-acre Folly Farm nature reserve.

Feed Folly

Feed Folly

We are very excited about Feed Folly- a new community food-growing project based here at Folly Farm Centre. The project will teach volunteers about growing healthy food and improving health and well-being, as well as encouraging wildlife into the garden.

The last two weeks has seen the project buzzing with community groups. The ‘Bee Team’ from Chew Valley School visited to assess the site for their ‘Bee Garden’; Bishop Sutton Primary School have learnt about organic gardening and design; young people from Tomorrow’s People Charity have made new benches; and the regular group from the Brandon Trust enjoyed an afternoon of gardening.

Destination Bristol’s Tourism and Hospitality Awards 2014

Monday 17 February saw the team here at Folly Farm Centre swop raincoats and welly boots for dresses and tuxedos!

This is because Monday night was Destination Bristol’s fourth annual Tourism and Hospitality Awards, wonderfully hosted by Downsy at Bristol’s Jack FM.

We were finalists in the Business Tourism category and (although we unfortunately didn’t win this year) it was fantastic to meet up with everyone that makes Bristol such a fantastic place to visit.
