A WORKING farm which helps people with learning disabilities has come away with a collection of Cheshire Show rosettes.

Let's Farm is a working farm based in Winsford and offers a day service for people with learning disabilities.

Young people from across Cheshire, including Knutsford, Northwich, Winsford and Middlewich, work as farm rangers on a family farm set in 100 acres of countryside in Winsford.

Farmer Rosie Lee teamed up with Nicola Colenso, who has 30 years of experience working with adults with learning difficulties, to develop this unique project.

And the rangers' hard work has seen the team win a second place rosette, a third place and two fourth places at the Cheshire Show.

Winsford Guardian:

Nicola said: "We took 12 rangers with us to the Cheshire Show today and we entered three sheep into the competition.

"We entered three lambs - one was untrimmed, one was a ram and was a ewe.

"Three rangers showed each individual lamb and then they did what is called a group of three, where they went in the ring together. 

"We're really proud of what we've achieved and the halter training has paid off.

"These young people have helped these lambs be born and followed their journey to show and exhibit them at the Cheshire Show 

"Let's Farm is meaningful, purposeful and young rangers have something to get up for in the morning - they've got a purpose, learning new skills, there is nothing on the farm they can't do.

"They turn their hand to everything and their work ethic is second to none.

"I can't tell you how much they have evolved and their confidence and self esteem is brilliant.

"The icing on the cake is for all of their hard work to pay off to enter into the show like everybody else.

"Also this diversifies the Cheshire Show, having people with learning difficulties enter into the categories."
