ANIMALS of all shapes and sizes took centre stage in Trowbridge on Saturday when people turned up in droves to a farm open day.

There was everything from feathered friends in the shape of an owl to furry friends with floppy ears at Larkrise Community Farm's bi-annual fete and open day.

Included in the activities was a gun show display, a fun fun dog show, pony and carriage rides, crafts, cakes, plants and produce so the whole family could find something to keep them entertained.

Trowbridge Mayor David Cavill and town crier Trevor Heeks joined forces to cut a tape around what else but a straw bale to declare the farm fete open.

Stephen Harrison was one man and his gun dogs Poppy, Daisy and Tilley as they put their skills on show and wowed the crowd.

Farm manager Wendy Self was in charge of carriage rides and said she was delighted with the weather and the turn out.

Former community farm student Alan Jones was helped by the farm in his teenage years and was on duty at the fete to help everything run smoothly.
