Ferriers Barn is located on the outskirts of Bures and has been running since 1974 as a day centre for people with disabilities. The Barn has developed as an arts and crafts centre where the Members (that is, those who attend) are taught and their families and carers are provided with essential respite. Activities undertaken there include woodworking, painting, gardening, mosaics and more general arts and crafts. Equally important to the Members is the relaxed and friendly environment the Barn offers, so allowing them to develop their skills in a supportive and sociable atmosphere. A freshly cooked, two course hot meal is provided every day.
