Hundreds of children and their families got the chance to be a farmer for a day, meet the birds, feed the large animals and cuddle rabbits at the farm, in Stansfield Road, Beckton.

The activities ran for a few hours every day last week.

Newham City Farm assistant manager, Christopher Kettle, said: “They got to interact with the animals, the ones they can see in the fields that they don’t normally get to interact with.

“We had quiet a diverse group of people come from across the whole of Newham.”

The farm is planning on hosting more half-term activities in the Easter holidays.
