AN AWARD-winning farm and adventure park has unveiled a new facility to help people with disabilities. 

Finkley Down Farm, located at North Way, Andover, has installed a Changing Places Facility at the farm to accommodate people with disabilities in getting changed and using the toilet. 

The unit contains a height-adjustable changing bench, basin and hoist so those with multiple and complex disabilities are able to use the public toilet with dignity.

Managing Director, Charlie Waters, said: "We invested in a Changing Places facility to promote accessibility and inclusivity at the farm.

"The Changing Places facility is designed to accommodate individuals with disabilities, particularly those who require assistance with toileting and changing.

"The facility will help to ensure that everyone can enjoy their visit to the farm comfortably. Feedback so far has been fantastic and it has been brilliant to see those not previously able to visit enjoying the farm."

Finkley Down Farm has been open to the public since 1981 when it became one of the first ever farm parks in the country. The farm is open all year round, with a massive indoor play barn with different areas for different age ranges.

There’s also lots of outdoor play, including the Little Farmers Driving School. Throughout the day, there are animal handling and feeding activities for children to get involved in.
