SCHOOLCHILDREN can watch one of the country’s leading sheepshearers in action at Hatton Farm Village, near Solihull, this month – and even get to take home small bags of wool to show their classmates at school.

Clifford Mitchell, who is a former Royal Show judge as well as being the shearing instructor for the British Wool Marketing Board, will be demonstrating his barber’s skills on the woolly locks of Hatton’s famous racing sheep.

Visitors will be able to watch him in action shearing black sheep, white sheep and speckled sheep every Saturday and Sunday during May at four daily 20-minute demonstrations.

Hatton Farm Village is at Hatton Country World, just off the A4177 between Warwick and Solihull.
