World Horse Welfare Penny Farm held its annual festive fair last Sunday.

Guests enjoyed games, pony rides, food and crafts stalls, and a special Pantomime performance starring Ladybelle as Cinderella, Buggy as Prince Charming, and Magpie and Tasha as the ugly sisters.

Penny Farm spokesman Zoe Clifford said: “It was the best Christmas fair we have ever had and we raised more than £1,500 which will all go to towards the 74 horses and ponies that are undergoing rehabilitation at the farm.
