KNIGHTON Manor Farm, near Broad Chalke, is opening to the public next Thursday (June 19).

There will be an optional farm tour.

Visitors will get the opportunity to see how five local farmers are working together.

It is hoped that the event, which is free, will raise more than £3,000, through sponsorship, donations and refreshments sold on the day.

The funds will benefit the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution, a welfare charity which helps farming people in financial difficulty.

Tours will depart at 6pm.

A beef barbecue and a bar serving local ales and wines will follow the tours at 7pm.

To reserve a place at the event and for further details, please contact organiser Heidi Upton on 01722 781250 or email
