The annual Christmas fair was held at the farm (Agricultural Science Unit) at Saffron Walden County High School at the weekend with visitors able to feed and hold the animals who live there.
The event raises money for the farm, which teaches farming and animal husbandry to pupils at the county high and other schools in the district.
There were craft and refreshment stalls and a chance for children to hold rabbits, walk ferrets, collect hens’ eggs, feed goats and even get up close to a boa constrictor called Aphrodite. There was also a children’s lucky dig and a tombola with prizes.
Among the other public events the school is planning in the run up to Christmas are the annual dance show, which this year is called The Best of British at Saffron Hall on December 12, the Senior Citizens Party on December 13 and the school’s charity variety show on December 14 for charities chosen by the students.
