Danielle Stone (Castle, Lab), said: “The weather was with us and we had a wonderful afternoon with lots of children and their adults having a great time.

"Everyone loved the animals, the reptiles, the farm animals and the birds of prey.

"It was great to see a lot of activity with young people having a go on the trapeze with the circus school and drumming with the African drummers. The donkeys were a great hit and the three-week-old piglets drew 'oohs and aahs' from everyone."
