Frog's Farm maze, in Thwaite, returns with a Platinum Jubilee twist
A family-run farm in Thwaite is welcoming back its annual sunflower maze – this time with a platinum jubilee twist.
Hidden amongst Frog’s Farm’s nine-acre maze, just off the A140, are cream teas and a cut-out of the Queen and Prince Philip, to honour the monarch’s 70th year on the throne.
Even more impressive is the fact that the maze forms the Queen’s Stamp from above, which visitors using exercise tracking apps can show off to their friends.
Bekkie Hatwell, who runs the farm with her partner, Freddy Vawdrey, decided to increase the size of the maze – from seven acres last year – to celebrate the once-in-a-lifetime jubilee.
“We are royalists; we love the monarchy and the Queen,” said 31-year-old Miss Hatwell, who took over the farm with Mr Vawdrey, 32, in 2019.
“We are never going to get to see a reign like this again, so we wanted to celebrate it.
“Last year, we had such lovely feedback – the smiles matched the sunflowers. So we wanted to offer an extra bit of sunshine.
“We feel the energy of a sunflower brings a smile to people’s faces.”
