Alina Maisie sows the seeds for an A-maize-ing summer!

Two year old Alina Maisie has just planted the seeds of summer at Willows Activity Farm!

Alina Maisie, from Chesham, has been busy sowing maize seeds for the annual A-maize-ing Maze which will shoot up in time for the Summer Spectacular event at Willows, beginning on the 19th July.With her wheelbarrow and trowel in hand, Alina Maisie has planted the seeds for a maize maze that will span acres of land, with a little help from Farmers Anna and Andrew of course.Farmer Andrew said ‘Our A-maize-ing Maze is a firm family favourite but this year we wanted to do something extra special. Parents often describe their children as “shooting up” so we wanted to plot our maize maze’s growth against little Alina Maisie’s!’But Alina Maisie may be on the back foot as the A-maize-ing Maze is set to grow to be 6 feet tall by the height of summer. Alina’s Mum, Katharina, said ‘We’re so pleased to be involved in the planting of the maze at Willows, and seeing how tall Alina Maisie will grow compared to the maze.“We’ve been invited back to visit so Alina Maisie can track the maze’s progress - I can’t wait to see her face when she sees the maize seeds she planted towering over her!”

As well as Maisie’s A-maize-ing Maze, Willows will also have a jam-packed programme of activity for visitors to enjoy during Summer Spectacular (between 19 July and 31 August). Spectators can take a punt on Billy No Mates or Kid Me Kate as they compete to win on the goat racing track. Visitors can then go for gold themselves in the summer sports day races- who will be the fastest on the space hoppers or the quickest to navigate their wheelbarrow around the cones?Plus find all the family favourites like Woolly’s Workout Agility Play Trail, Tristan the Runaway Tractor and under cover play at JCB Little Learners and Woolly’s Jumpers Indoor play barn throughout the summer season.

Summer Spectacular is at Willows from 19 July to 31 August, for more information visit or call 0870 129 9718
