to get everyone together (including me!), whether you’re a FFS member or you
wanted to try something new with like minding ladies. This is a perfect way to get out
in the fresh air and do something different whilst being refreshed and rejuvenated.

As a working mum and a competitive strength athlete*, with 3 chickens, 2 cats, 2
children, a dog and a husband, she she always reminded how busy life can get! This is
a great way to escape for a day for some well deserved ‘ME’ time, in a beautiful
place with some lovely ladies.
(Hannah is currently England’s Strongest U57kg Strongwomen. Yes, like you see on the TV at
Christmas with the big concrete balls! She has competed in 2 World Championships with a 3rd later

Hi I’m sonya and own Eagle Mill with my husband Sam, Jack our 8 year old son and two dogs Bella and Cally.
