Lambing Season in Brotherlee, Weardale with Richard Holden MP
Richard had a wonderful afternoon with the Wall family especially George, Oliver, Christine and Rebecca - meeting some of their new arrivals - including Gwen who is very keen on a bit of bottle feeding!
It was really nice to see some veterinary students up from University of Cambridge too on a two-week placement as part of their course taking a real interest in farming.
As lambing season hits full tilt across Weardale and North West Durham as a whole do enjoy seeing the newborns out and about in the fields but be extra vigilant when you’re walking, especially with dogs.
Best wishes to all our hill farmers and their flocks
