On Wednesday August 1, White Lion Square, Market Square and The Arcade transformed into an urban farm for Animal Crackers.

Children got the chance to meet all kinds of farm yard animals from Ark Farm, including ducks, donkeys, sheep and a Shetland pony.

They also learnt about what food the animals eat and how they’re looked after.

There was also falconry displays, donkey rides, small reptile handling, children’s activities, and a fun fair.

Local animal charities including Herts and Middlesex Bat Group and the Wildlife Trust were there providing information on topics such as animal welfare as well as providing activities for children.

Councillor Bernard Sarson said: “Animal Crackers once again proved to be a really popular event.”
