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.

“Everyone had a lovely morning and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves.” She added that other pre-schools should be inspired to run similar events as it helps young children get excited about learning.
