Coun Mark Dobson, executive member for cleaner, stronger and safer communities, said: “It is always an exciting time at Home Farm when newborns start arriving as well as being a traditional sign that spring is almost here.

“I know staff at the farm will be looking forward to introducing the new additions to everyone who comes along over Easter.”
