Meet our team: Find out more about Toni

“No two days are ever alike. It’s a pleasure to come to work…”

Over the coming weeks and months, we’d like to introduce you to some of the friendly faces you meet when you visit Walby Farm Park. We’re very proud of our team. They work tirelessly to make sure that you are having fun and getting the most from your visit.

This article is all about Toni. Chances are, Toni will be one of the first people you meet when you arrive, and she has been with us right from the start of our Farm Park adventure. Here’s what she has to say about working at Walby Farm Park.

“I have been working at Walby Farm Park since it opened 9 years ago. In fact, I remember painting doors and helping with the preparations before we opened to visitors. I can normally be found at the reception desk as you walk in through the door, in the shop area or overseeing a children’s party.

We could be planning a Bug Day or Circus Week…

Every day is different, and it’s a pleasure to come to work. I work closely with my colleague, Sarah in the planning of events and activities through the year. We could be planning a Bug Day or a Circus Week, and so it’s our job to make these events happen. We also work together to organise marketing leaflets, flyers and posters so visitors can easily see exactly what’s going on and when.

At weekends we spend our time overseeing children’s parties and making sure our younger members of staff, who are here at weekends, are clear about what they need to do and where they need to be.

Awards for our fantastic customer service

I’m very proud of the fact that Walby Farm Park has won so many awards for our fantastic customer service. It’s at the heart of everything we do. It doesn’t happen by accident, we work at it every day. So when one of our visitors praises us for the service we provide, it makes it all worthwhile.

Fresh home cooked meals every day

The café is also one of the great things about working here. All the food is freshly cooked right here every day. It’s great value for money for our visitors, and it tastes delicious. My favourite is the Chicken & Broccoli Pasta Bake. It’s so good!

I’m obsessed with Lambing Live

I have to admit that I am totally addicted to our Lambing Live webcam. Even when I’m at home in the evening, I am watching it all the time. I set my alarm for 1 am, 4 am, and 6 am, and I text Neil if a ewe starts to lamb to get him out of bed. If you haven’t watched it yet, it’s a must. But be prepared to become hooked.

Everyone should do the Big Red Slide at Walby Farm Park

Our 24-foot demon drop slide is an absolute must. It’s great for kids, but it’s fantastic for adults too. I’d highly recommend it!”

I love working at Walby Farm Park, it’s the best job ever. So do come and say hello and let me know your favourite event or activity. We love getting feedback from our visitors.”
