Springtime Cheer on the Wasing Estate

Wasing Park would normally be alive with the sound of wedding celebrations at this time but, despite the disappointment of not being able to welcome brides and grooms at the moment, the 4,000-acre estate has been enjoying other new beginnings...

The spring bulbs are in full bloom and the birth of many calves and lambs have breathed new life into the farm, while some of the team have been busy supporting the local community with essential food deliveries.

Farm Manager, Nick Corp, has reported a busy 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.

Supporting the local community

Fishers of Newbury supply Wasing Park with all the fruit and vegetables for weddings and events. Now the team at Wasing 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 boxes for each home. A trio of volunteers are delivering the groceries to the doorstep of residents in Aldermaston and Brimpton including the Parish Rector, Jane Manley.

There has been no rest either for the gardeners at Wasing Park who have also been working flat out manicuring the 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 all prepped for when guests are able to return to celebrate and enjoy the venue.
