A Different World - Making a Difference


Our Staff

Come and meet the staff at our Holiday Farm.

The day to day running of the farm is undertaken by just four staff;


Kelly Broadfield – Resident Warden. Kelly lives on site and is responsible for the upkeep of the buildings and grounds, supervising staff and volunteers, overseeing the animals, admin & bookings and making sure our visitors are well looked after.


Maxine Hough – Cook/Housekeeper. Maxine looks after all of the catering and ensures the farmhouse is looking its best.


Loveday Charman– Animal keeper. Loveday is responsible for looking after our animals and ensuring our young visitors get to spend lots of time with them . Loveday is on a university placement with us until Summer 2018 and also lives on site.  Karl Harrison looks after the grounds and animals on Thursdays and Fridays.


Either Kelly or Loveday are available on call including during the night (emergencies only).  


Kelly and Maxine are first aid trained and have food hygiene qualifications and all staff have current DBS certificates.  Kelly also has a paediatric first aid certificate.


Staff are here to facilitate a successful, enjoyable visit but they are not teachers or babysitters.  Visiting children must remain the responsibility of the adults with them either teachers or parents at all times.
