Organisers said the sunshine helped bring in lots of new people to the Life on a Farm event in The Broadway on Saturday.

It included lots of farm animals including geese, rabbits, goats, sheep, piglets, and ponies from Wellgate Farm and Off the Farm.

There were also displays from MYCA Falconry, Havering Classic Cars Show, the Haverettes, Hornchurch Drum and Trumpet Corps and a Punch and Judy Show.

Organiser Ingrid Brandon, from the Elm Park Regeneration Partnership, said: “We had lots of good feedback, and people liked that there were a variety of different displays at the event. The sunshine helped bring more people out and we had a scarecrow-making competition by the shops, which was won by the Fresh and Fruity shop.”
