EASTER has been a busy time at the Newbridge Farm Park at Aylton, thanks to lots of new arrivals among the animals and bumper visitor numbers.

Visitor numbers have been averaging around 500 people a day, and farm park spokesman Wayne Gardner said: "We've been very busy. We thought we were very busy last Easter but this is probably our best year yet, and hopefully, with good weather, it will continue."

Attractions include the chance to see lambs being bottle fed, as well as the opportunity to admire foals and spring chicks.
