Duchess of Cambridge visits Farms for City Children

The Duchess of Cambridge visited Farms for City Children, to see their work giving young people from inner cities the chance to spend a week on a real working farm, on May 3rd at Wick Court, Arlingham, Gloucester. She joined a school group of pupils and teachers in activities around the farm, and met children’s author Michael Morpurgo, and his wife Clare, to learn more about the organisation they founded in 1976.

The Duchess of Cambridge started her visit to Farms for City Children at Wick Court with a briefing about the farm before joining a story time session led by Michael Morpurgo. She then joined the children as they completed work around the farm yard, working in the allotments and tending to pigs, sheep and chickens as required, and even fed ‘Stinky’ the lamb. Finally, the Duchess met some of the volunteers, staff and trustees at a small tea party.
