Excited children were in for a treat when they visited Astley Park on Saturday.

For they had the chance to get up close to animals from Charnock Richard-based Fishers Mobile Farm.

There was a selection of farmyard animals including miniature ponies, dwarf and giant rabbits, pygmy goats, sheep, ducks, hens, a cockerel, a donkey, pig and a Jersey cow.

The event, named Animals In The Park, was held on the lawn outside the Coach House.

Children could meet the farmyard animals and learn more about them.

It was one of a series of events being held at the park this summer, organised by Chorley Council.
