New lambs the highlight of school farm club’s Easter event
VISITORS to Saffron Walden County High School Farm Club’s Easter event will be able to see new-born lambs.
Audley Jess, the farm’s five-year-old Ryeland, ewe gave birth to two ewe lambs on Saturday morning.
Farm manager Dave Crosby said: “All are doing well and the ewes have been named Rachel and Rebecca. More lambs are due and all will be given names beginning with R as this is the 2012 letter prefix for Ryeland sheep.”
Visitors will be able to see the lambs and other animals on the school farm and in the small livestock area, and handle pets in the Pet’s Corner, at an event on Easter Saturday, April 7, from 2-4pm.
Entrance is �2 per family. The event will include an Easter egg hunt and raffle, produce stall and other attractions. Light refreshments will be available.
