NEWBORN lambs had everybody talking when Saffron Walden County High School's farm opened its doors to the public on Saturday.

Families enjoyed watching the eight lambs, along with goats, rabbits and guinea pigs.

And fun was had on an Easter egg hunt at the open day, held by the school's Farm Club.

Farm manager Dave Crosby, said: "Our new lambs have once again been a big hit with the pupils, as well as all the visitors who came along.

"All are doing well and a number of students had the opportunity to see the births at first hand.

"We decided to name all the lambs with the letter J this year, so we have Jack, Jake, Jess, Jonny, Jaspar, Joy and Josh."

Visitors were also able to see 25 Black Rock newborn chicks, which are being kept in a brooder under a lamp and the farm's two Dexter cows.
