BOUNCING bundles of joy will be the main attraction at Hatton Farm Village, near Solihull, this February half-term, as a Lambing Marquee is put into operation.

Around 50 ewes are due to give birth over the holiday period (February 13 to 21) and, as part of their February Frolics event, the farm village has opened a special lambing marquee, where woolly mums-to-be can be seen with their new born lambs

Hatton’s shepherd Pete will be giving talks on the lambing event, explaining the lambing process and taking questions from visitors. Little Bo Peep will be also be on hand to make sure all the newborns are doing well. Farm Village manager, Richard Craddock, said: “Visitors always love to see the newborn animals at the farm, and we are hoping that there may also be piglets, and perhaps some baby pigmy goats arriving too.”

The farm village will also be hosting science demonstrations based around farming from Mad Science, children’s shows with Uncle Zoobee, as well as funfair rides, falconry displays, and adventure play.

Hatton Farm Village is located just off the A4177 between Warwick and Solihull. For further information call 01926 843411 or visit www.hattonworld.com
