down on the farm

Yesterday, some of us went along to do a day's volunteering at Hounslow Urban Farm, one of London's largest community farms.

They have a whole host of animals there, including 5 breeds of pig, some goats, sheep and cows and even a few rheas chipmunks. It's a lovely place.


While they were there, our volunteers got the chance to name a little lamb. They decided to call her 'Carlton' or 'Carly for short. Carlton is Jon Wright's middle name so it's a fitting tribute indeed.

They then spent the day building some very fine animal shelters and mucking out the odd field. Which was all very helpful according to Mary who works there.


Jeremy even managed to rescue a runaway sheep on his way back to the car.
