Come and see the new-born lambs at Broomfield Hall!

Along with snowdrops, daffodils and lighter evenings, nothing quite announces the arrival of Spring like the sight of new-born lambs in the fields.

And to help celebrate this special time of year, Derby College is holding its popular Lambing Sunday event at its Broomfield Hall campus in Morley on 26th March.

Visitors will be able to meet and pet the lambs, look around the working farm, and learn about some of the other animals being cared for by the staff and students at the College. The Animal Care Unit will be open for guests to meet a host of its resident animals, including porcupines, wallabies, donkeys, meerkats, rabbits, mini-pigs, reptiles and many more!

There will also be a special appearance by Broomie the Sheep. Broomie was found lying in a field last year, close to death and unable to use his front legs. But thanks to the dedication of the team at the College he has been nursed back to health and is now back on his feet again and waiting to greet visitors to Lambing Sunday!

Adrian Oliver, Farm Manager at Broomfield Hall, said: “The next few weeks are going to be a really busy time for us at the College as we have around 100 ewes all waiting to give birth. Visitors will be able to see new-born lambs, older lambs… and maybe even the chance to see some of the lambs being born! It really is a fantastic day out for all the family, and we’re looking forward to welcoming people to come and share this magical time of year with us.”
