We here at The Catholic Worker Farm are working to support and accommodate destitute women (whom we call ‘Guests’). These are vulnerable homeless women and children disentitled to benefits or work permits, literally “street homeless”. The house is located near London, England, on a working farm, restored to suit the needs and comforts of our Guests, where we try to live each day by the love and values of Jesus Christ.
Welcome to our vey own FARM FOLK MUSIC FESTIVAL - A fundraiser with and for homeless women and children at The Catholic Worker Farm, Old Uxbridge Rd, West Hyde, Herts, WD3 9XJ. The festival was very much appreciated last year. This year it will be even better than 2013. Keep an eye out for bands to be announced.
Tickets £5 at the door, under 12′s free. Or buy tickets in advance to help us plan for the day.
To get to the events you could take the tube and then a bus for about £2.70(?) or Taxi for about 8£/car. We are also happy to pick people up from the nearest Tube Stop which is Rickmansworth.

More Summer Events 2014
During the summer we are also planning one other event and some more little ones might come up as well later.
The EUROPEAN CHRISTIAN ANARCHIST CONFERENCE on the 18th-21st JULY. This event is co-organised with A Pinch of Salt and the theme for 2014 is Comforting the Afflicted, Afflicting the Comfortable. There will be Workshops, Roundtable Discussions, time for reflection and socialising around the bonfire.
Our present needs
At the moment would be especially happy to recieve donations of…
- Toilet paper
- Cleaning supplies such as sponges, sprays, gloves, dishwasher tablets and laundry detergent
- Food, especially sugar, juice, milk, butter, cheese and cooking oil. Because of generous support we now have enough tinned soup, pasta and porridge oats.
