STAFF are in training to take on Wacky Races at Barleylands.

Workers put on their best mascot costumes to warm up for the race around the farm park’s track.

Barleylands’ Wacky Races will run from Monday, July 21 to Friday, July 25, which is the first week of the school’s six-week holidays.

Children can also enjoy sheep racing and decorate themed biscuits.

Farm park manager Dave Finkle said: “This year we’re celebrating our 30th anniversary and we’ll have 30 days of summer fun in the farm park. We’ll have a different theme every week over the six weeks of the holidays and this was the inspiration for my summer sculpture.

“Each letter represents a weekly theme with a sporty ‘S’ for our Wacky Races, a snake for deadly creatures and a rabbit in a hat for entertainer week.”
