More than 18,000 people have already visited the farm since it reopened on August 1 following the coronavirus lockdown.

Venues manager at Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation, Jason Valentine, said: “A massive thank you to everyone who visited Standalone Farm this summer.

“While the impact of COVID-19 on the farm has been significant, we were keen to reopen for a few weeks to ensure local families had somewhere to go during the school holidays.

Safety measures were put in place to allow local families a safe space to visit over the school holidays as the COVID-19 situation continues.

Some of the improvements being implemented at Standalone have been suggested by customers who took part in a survey in 2019.
