A BIRKENSHAW restaurant is looking to reward fed up and stressed families with a sweet treat and ultimate family day out this summer.

The Heathfield Farm Farmhouse Inns dining and carvery on Heathfield Lane is helping parents beat summer holiday frustration by offering one family a year’s supply of FREE ice cream and £1,000 cash for the ultimate day out, including a family meal at the restaurant.

Key reasons behind parental stress during the summer holidays include running out of money (56 per cent) and running out of activities to do (49 per cent), with more than half (52 per cent) of parents admitting their kids drive them mad over the six-week break.

Kevin Wilson, general manager at the Heathfield Farm Farmhouse Inns, said: “As a parent, you often hear the words ‘’I’m bored’, especially with six long weeks to fill. That’s why we wanted to help give back to a family in Birkenshaw and make their summer extra special.”

To be in with a chance of winning the prize, locals simply need to visit the Farmhouse Inns website at


and describe in 100 words or fewer what will make their summer ultimate by August 31.
