Winchelsea's secret gardens will be opened to support charities this spring and summer. The main June opening raises more money in one day for the National Gardens Scheme than any other event in the county. Money raised goes to national cancer care and hospice charities
A local farm is offering short courses covering every aspect of lambing and the chance to stay in a shepherd's hut. Students will learn how to spot the signs of impending labour, to care for new-borns and about the opportunities for fostering. Participants include beginners and prospective shepherds.
