We are very proud to announce that Andrew Reid, the owner and creator of Belmont Farm, has been nominated for the 'London Borough of Barnet’s Civic awards 2017'. These awards recognise local unsung heroes hard work and commitment within the community. Against all odds, Andrew has kept Belmont Farm open for the public to enjoy and learn about food and farming in London’s hidden valley. As well as taking in schools, volunteers, work experience placements and social groups across Barnet and the wider area, Andrew hosts numerous charity events including Starlight Children’s Foundations summer party which provides a networking day for families whose children are suffering from serious or terminal illnesses. The event in 2016 was the largest held so far and saw over 900 guests enjoy a day out at the farm.
