Wellgate Community Farm brought a mixture of sheep, goats, chicken, guinea pigs and rabbits to the Mercury Shopping Centre in Romford.

Throughout the week the centre is being joined by Havering health ambassadors to highlight no smoking day and signpost general health advice.

Gemma Brooks, marketing and tenant liaison at The Mercury, said: 'It's crucial to be highlighting the importance of health and wellbeing as the majority of people lead busy lives and health is key to our everyday functioning and development.

'It's also great as a centre that we can help our customers to make healthier choices and as a health champion myself I understand that sign posting people can help them to understand what's available to them.'
