Making sure Margam’s Animals don’t miss out on Christmas Dinner

15 December 2017

Christmas Day will be a working day like any other for Margam Park’s Staff, who will be out whatever weather ensuring the animals are fed and watered.

Making sure Margam’s Animals don’t miss out on Christmas Dinner

Christmas Day is the only day of the year when the park is closed to the public, however things will not come to a halt. All of the animals need to be fed, from donkeys and Shetland ponies to sheep and cows to the park’s unique herd of deer.

Water can often freeze over and food is needed to ensure that the animals stay healthy and warm, so it is important that the staff head out and tend to the farm trail.

In the run up to Christmas the parks herd of Fallow, Red and Pere David Deer will be fed by Father Christmas, with members of the public able to look on from the historic front lawns of Margam Castle. This is a chance to come close to one of nature’s most spectacular wild animals, as they venture close to the castle walls in search of a tasty treat.

The Deer feeds will take place on December 20th, 21st, and 22nd. The Deer feeds start at 11am. Tickets are priced at £15 for cars. For access to the disabled parking facilities, please arrive at the park before 10.30am.

Entrance to the Deer Feeds is by ticket, which must be purchased in advance none are for sale on the day. Tickets can be purchased from http://www.margamcountrypark.co.uk/ or phone Margam Country Park on 01639 881635.
