Go Provence Supported Holidays is a British holiday company based in the sunny climate of Provence, France, that offers supported holidays to adults and children with learning disabilities, learning difficulties and autism.
The Go Provence country house is based in a small village called Moustiers Sainte-Marie, which sits near the gateway to the Gorges du Verdon (Verdon Gorges), the biggest gorge in Europe and is Europe’s very own Grand Canyon. The holidays that Go Provence offer are culturally connected to the local area, from Wolf Tracking and Wildlife Photography to World Cooking and many more.
Go Provence are offering one lucky winner a place on their ‘Discover Provence’ Holiday on the 3 – 10 August 2017. This holiday will include activities such as, kayaking, a mini cruise in St. Tropez, a trip around the Gorges du Verdon, a trip to the local goat farm, a visit to the local market, swimming in the nearby lakes and much more. The holidays include all meals and all the support on your holiday that you need from the Go Provence team.
Name the Goat
To be in with a chance of winning all you must do is help the local goat farm, the Ferme des Fabrigoules, name one of their baby goats due to be born in March. The organic farm rear the ‘Provençales’ goat and produce organic goat milk and cheese to sell in the local markets. When Go Provence visits the farm, they get to meet the goats, milk them and make their own cheese.
There are some tight criteria to follow in choosing a name for their goats! The farm must, by French agricultural law, choose a name that follows the alphabet. For 2017 the letter will be N. The second piece of criteria is that the name follows a theme, eg. when a goat that called River (a water theme) has a baby in 2017, the baby has to follow its mother’s water theme. In this case, you could call the baby goat Nile, after the River Nile. The rules for the farms goat naming system enable the farm and associates, to quickly identify how old the goat is and which mother they belong to.
The following themes for the goat naming competition which you must follow are:
- A shortened name (eg. Sally shortened to Sal)
- An ingredient used in magical potions
- A comic book character
- Association by the theme of organic
- A greeting in any language
- A flower
Remember, the name must begin with the letter ‘N’.
The winner will get to meet the goat that they have named when they go on holiday in the summer of 2017.
