COVID Testing at Merryhue Farm

Happy New Year

2020 was a hard year for everybody. COVID restrictions made it a particularly challenging year, and we understand that moving into 2021 isn't going to make that magically disappear. However, we believe that there is a light emerging at the end of the tunnel. We hope that this year will make up for the previous!

The farm is still observing proper COVID safety protocols, so please be aware of the rules if and when they arise. But no matter what, the team at Together We Can Succeed will strive to ensure you get the most from our wonderful facilities.

We wish you a Happy New Year. We'll see you on the farm!

CHAS Accreditation

On March 25th 2018 Winning Steps South West gained its CHAS accreditation for Health and Safety. This confirms that we have achieved the industry standard for our Health and Safety procedures and practices.


We're really sorry for the late notice, but due to the bad weather we have to close the site today, Monday 19th March 2018. All learners will be able to make up their hours next term, so please don't worry about missing college. Stay safe and enjoy the snow! We will keep you updated but expect to be open again tomorrow.


We will be open as normal tomorrow, Tuesday 19th March 2018, with all minibus pick-ups working at your usual times. It's still very chilly so wrap up warm with plenty of layers.
