Ferriers Barn is located on the outskirts of Bures and has been running since 1974 as a day center for people with disabilities. The Barn has developed as an arts and crafts center where the Members (that is, those who attend) are taught and their families and carers are provided with essential respite. Activities undertaken there include woodworking, painting, gardening, mosaics and more general arts and crafts. Equally important to the Members is the relaxed and friendly environment the Barn offers, so allowing them to develop their skills in a supportive and sociable atmosphere. A two course hot meal is provided every day.
We organise trips out throughout the year, last year we went to Colchester Zoo, the panto, pub visits and many more. We love to get out and about. We also organise events in house, a petting zoo visit, Barn Dance, Music Festival and many more.
