Over 1,000 visitors were able to meet farmers who were around to show the animals, including newborn lambs, to the delight of youngsters.

There were tractor, horse and cart rides, a lamb naming competition, crafts, a raffle, face painting and lots of other activities to keep children entertained.

A barbecue kept mouths watering as the smells filled the air and mums and dads were able to take some home with them as the Harvel Farm Shop was open selling meats and other springtime gifts.

EllenorLions Hospices events manager Emma Whittington said: “We are very grateful to Harvel House Farm for once again allowing us to use their wonderful farm and for being so supportive.

“It was a marvellous opportunity to visit a working farm, whilst raising vital funds. All money raised will provide care and support to seriously ill children, young people and adults in the local community”.
