Half Term at The Ice Cream Farm

Ice Cream Farm 1

We've been working hard here at The Ice Cream Farm to ensure we're ready for the (hopefully) sunny weather over the school holidays.

We have put a series of initiatives in place so that we can cope with the volume of customers coming to The Ice Cream Farm. Our online 'Fast Track System' is now in full swing and has already proven to be very successful. This system enables customers to pre-book their time slot on the activities, such as Honeycomb Canyon, SCOOP JCB and the Fun Factory. This means less queuing time as people can plan their day much better and they also have an indication of what days are looking busy.

We have been working really hard to ensure that the overflow field can accommodate additional visitor parking. Unfortunately, we had several issues over the Easter period due to the heavy rain, which meant that the grass was waterlogged and unusable. However, we are keeping the grass very low so that the site has the best possible chance of drying out. In the near future, we also intend to submit a planning application for minimal engineering works to ensure the field is always available as an overflow car park during busy periods.

We also continue to work with agencies such as the police, planners, highways and the local authority to find ways to improve the traffic flow around The Ice Cream Farm. All agencies have been really supportive and we are confident moving forward into the busier months that congestion will ease.

Additionally, an accredited traffic management company has been employed over two weekends to identify traffic flow problems and offer solutions. Traffic lights at Newton Crossroads were trialled but considered unnecessary by the experts. At The Ice Cream Farm we have carried out extensive data on traffic flow but additionally highways and planning are also intending to carry out surveys to determine speed and traffic volume.

Finally, from 28th May, we will be opening from 9.30am so people can arrive earlier to beat the rush. This will also help relieve any potential car parking issues during the peak times of the day.

We're looking forward to welcoming residents of Tattenhall over the half term holiday and summer months and we continue to do everything we can to support our near neighbours and to actively seek solutions to any problems.
