“I remember the first time I came up here was to rescue your sheep,” one of the volunteers recalled.
“I know that’s right,” Clive said, and the volunteer continued: “It was raining, it was horrible and this very large, very pregnant lady came across on a quad bike.
“She said, ‘I just thought I’d see how you’re doing,’” he added.
“Yes, we’ve had our share of drama, haven’t we?” Amanda agreed.
Amanda and husband Clive have nine children, Clemmy, Annas, Violet, nine, Edith, 11, Raven, 18, Nancy, three, Reuben, 16, Miles, 14, and Sidney, eight.
