This weekend will see a Wiltshire college farm open its barn doors and let thousands of children and their parents see lambs being born.

It will be the 20th anniversary of the first time the Wiltshire College at Lackham, near Chippenham, staged a lambing weekend.

As well as the excitement of seeing lambs being born or getting to their feet for the first time, the farm visit also includes pigs, tractor rides and an opportunity to feed deer.

Ian Revill, the drector of campus at Lackham, said: "We are delighted to be celebrating our 20th anniversary of lambing. The weekends seem like the very start of the real springtime, but the weather can be still quite wintry so visitors should bring coats and boots. Those who are patient are very likely to see a lamb being born, which, no matter how many times you see it, is always a really amazing experience."
