A VISITOR attraction is changing its booking system to cater for guests.

The Amelia Trust Farm, an educative countryside sanctuary, in Five Mile Lane, Barry, re-opened to the public on July 7 this year - following the coronavirus outbreak.

The independent charity supports disadvantaged and vulnerable teenagers who are going through a difficult time.

A farm spokeswoman said: "We are overwhelmed with the response and cannot thank our visitors enough for supporting us.

"We appreciate our visitor’s cooperation whilst we continue to work on the ‘new norm’.

"The safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers has always been, and will continue to be, our main priority.

"We hope to see plenty of visitors at the farm soon."

The booking system changes mean:

Entry continues to be by pre-booked tickets only - this can be done via www.ameliatrust.org.uk

The farm cannot accept bookings over the phone on the day

If you turn up without a ticket, then it is unable to allow entry

Tickets are £3.50 each – children over the age of one years old will need a ticket and carers do need to pay

Entry will be every two hours (10am, 12pm, 2pm) and the farm is allowing a certain number of visitors in those time slots (if you are trying to book and the system goes back to a certain number then that means that’s the amount they can fit in for that slot as the tickets have already been booked up)

If you are any later than 15 minutes for your booked time slot, then they cannot allow entry

They continue to have a one-way system in place, regular toilet and handwashing facility cleaning rotas and the café is open.
