Adam Henson 'devastated' to close Cotswold Farm Park

The Cotswold Farm Park is set to close its gates tomorrow afternoon (Friday) for the foreseeable future due to coronavirus.

Adam Henson said in a statement this morning: "Following our recent updates regarding the outbreak of Covid-19, Duncan and I have made the heartbreaking decision to close the Farm Park for the foreseeable future, from 5pm on Friday 20th March.

"As you can imagine, this is devastating for us all. Please bear with us during these very uncertain times - we will keep you all updated in the coming weeks and months.

"To all our Farm Park family - team, members, visitors and supporters from afar - take care of yourselves and your families, and we very much look forward to welcoming you all back to the Farm Park once this is behind us all."

The farm park says it is closing to support the ongoing health and wellbeing of its visitors and staff is a priority. "Whilst devastated, we believe this is the responsible decision to make."

All memberships will be extended by the length of time the park is closed for.

Regarding the farm park's animals, a statement said: "We know how fond of the animals our visitors are - please don't worry about them, they will be in very safe hands. We have a dedicated farm team who look after our livestock - they will continue as usual and the welfare of the animals will continue to be a priority."

It added: "It's times like these people pull together and our Farm Park community are a tower of strength for us. The coming weeks and months will be a struggle for us financially. If you would like to help - and are in a position to do so - you can purchase Flexi tickets that are valid for the next 12 months or membership, which we will ensure is dated from the day of re-opening."
