There may have been snow on the ground last week, but nature waits for no man - or beast - and lambs are still on their way.
Hadlow College is the first to hold its hugely popular Lambing Weekend on Saturday, March 10 and Sunday, March 11. The campus in Hadlow, near Tonbridge, will be open between 11am and 4pm both days for visitors to see the new spring arrivals.
There will be commentary in the lambing sheds by the agriculture lecturers as visitors meet the starts of the show.
The college makes a day of it, with local produce stalls, a birds of prey display, climbing wall, tractor trailer rides (weather permitting) and hovercraft rides. There will be a countryside marquee with fun, interactive activities, and the chance to hear about some of the courses on offer at the college.
The event always attracts thousands, so book your tickets in advance online. On the gate they cost £7, £4 for children between two and 16, and £18 for a family of two adults and up to three children. Details at hadlow.ac.uk

'TIS THE SEASON TO LAMB
Spring is a busy time in the farming calendar, as farmers get ready to care for ewes and their newborn lambs. Some 15million ewes are expected to give birth across the country during the season.
Lambing Live events often happen throughout April and give people a chance to experience the sight for themselves. So grab your wellies and head on down to the farm. Look for #LambingLive on Twitter.
