Visitors to the activity farm in Coursers Road, London Colney, will be seeing double between Saturday, February 11 and Sunday, February 19.

All the family can experience the joy of live lambing as hundreds of twin lambs are born during the Willows Activity Farm February Frolics event.

With most lambs born as a pair or triplets, this special lamb-a-thon promises to be a visit to remember.

Tuck the Shepherd will be on hand throughout the week to supervise the newest members of the flock being born, and will be giving live bottle feeding demonstrations every day.
