SPRING has sprung at a Wear Valley care home following a visit from four lambs.

Raby Cottage based at The Willington Care Village welcomed the baby animals for an afternoon to celebrate the new season.

Residents, members of staff and their children were taught about caring for and feeding the lambs and watched them play.

Julie Gray, manager at the Bondcare owned Raby Cottage, said: “Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the visit from the lambs and it was a perfect way for us to celebrate Spring.

“At Raby Cottage we have a carefully planned programme of activities and events for residents to enjoy and benefit from.”
