YOUNG farm­ers have been get­ting into the fes­tive spirit by host­ing a car­ols with an­i­mals event. The tra­di­tional cel­e­bra­tion on the school farm at Brock­hill school in Salt­wood, Hythe, saw fam­i­lies and res­i­dents gather to en­joy carol singing with mu­sic per­formed by Hythe Town Band. Chil­dren were able to visit Fa­ther Christ­mas in his win­ter won­der­land and there was also a Na­tiv­ity scene in­clud­ing an­i­mals. Club leader Donna Hawkes said: “The evening was re­ally fes­tive and our snow ma­chine added even more fun to it.” The young farm­ers have also been co-or­di­nat­ing Brock­hill school’s con­tri­bu­tion of 100 shoe­boxes to the Op­er­a­tion Christ­mas Child Ap­peal, where shoe­boxes are filled and sent out to chil­dren in war-torn and dev­as­tated coun­tries.
