"the animal farm should happen once again"

About: Arnold Lodge Regional Secure Unit

(as the patient),

There was an animal farm that came to the hospital at Arnold Lodge and everybody attended at the farm. It was showing at the field and there was many animals that were on show. I was pleased and satisfied with the outcome on my purpose of me being there and mixing the animals its self.

This should happen once again, and once again to see many different kinds of animals that were on show.

Hi Lawn 567

Thank you for taking the time to post your positive feedback about the mobile farm that visited Arnold Lodge in August. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed the experience of being with the animals so much. I have received postive feedback from many of the other patients that got involved, as well as the staff! We will definitely look at running another mobile farm event next Summer and we are also investigating other animals that can visit the unit. Suggestions we have had from patients so far are for a variety of reptiles, e.g. snakes, lizards etc. as well as birds of prey, e.g. owls, falcons, etc.

Hope you have the opportunity to get involved with these future events and thank you again for your posting. I will ensure that I pass on your positive comments to the staff involved in organising the event this time.

Best wishes
