Youngsters invited to lend a hand with lambing


There's a chance to let your children witness spring bursting out all over at an Island farm this half-term.

Ballig Farm in Jurby East is throwing open its gates for the public to watch - and perhaps help with - spring lambing.

Visitors will be offered a close-up experience inside the lambing sheds, helping ewes and their offspring in the pens. 

Lambing Live 2014 sessions will be held 2-4 pm this Saturday and Sunday (15, 16 Feb), the following weekend and Tuesday and Thursday of half-term week.
