Children enjoyed meeting chicks and hunting for Easter eggs at a farm open day in Barnston on Sunday.

The Rainbow Rural Centre hosted about 150 people for the event, which saw families enjoy trailer tractor rides and take part in equestrian activities.

Centre director, Carole Monk said: “We got more people than I think the weather would have promised. Everybody who came had a fantastic time. We had a ‘name the rabbit competition’ and a ‘count the sheep game’. The winning name for the rabbit was Granny Apple.”

Community gardening project Get Diggin’ It, which has recently installed a new polytunnel at the farm, was also on hand during the day.
