MORE than 1500 people descended on Harvel House Farm in Meopham to see newborn lambs and to support north Kent charity EllenorLions Hospice.

People of all ages went along to Springtime at the Farm, a popular annual fundraising event organised by the hospice.

The working farm in Harvel was busy with smiling families all wanting to catch a glimpse of the lambing ewes and their new born lambs.

There was also the opportunity to meet pigs, petting lambs, miniature Shetland ponies and have a ride on the horse and cart.

People spent generously at the stalls and on refreshments knowing their money will help to pay for vital hospice care for seriously ill children, young people and adults in the local community.

Events Manager Emma Whittington said: "Springtime at the Farm is always a popular event for us and it looked like everyone really enjoyed themselves.

"It was wonderful to see so many turning out support their local hospice."
