A pre-school had some special furry visitors last week including a goat, rabbits, ducks and chickens.

Youngsters from Marlborough Pre-School, in Cranham, had a chance to meet animals from Wellgate Farm on Friday to learn more about animal sounds.

Staff set up the mobile farm in the Cranham Community Centre, where the pre-school is based, and talked about the animals, allowed the children, aged three to five, to handle and feed them.

Eileen Beasley, from the pre-school, said: “It was lovely; the children had a good time as they were able to get close and feed the animals.

“Parents keep coming in to let us know how much their children are talking about it.
