PHOTOS and INTERVIEWS: Farm animals take centre-stage with Beyond Bear at Heysham community fun day

Beyond Bear meets Matilda the calf at the Lancaster City Council Community Fun Day in Heysham

Beyond Bear experienced life on the farm with a calf called Matilda, lambs called Patsy and Edina, and chickens called Bhuna, Tikka and Nugget!

Families also got to meet the animals - including Beyond Bear! - at the event organised by Lancaster City Council on Thursday.

The community day was held on the green space near Peel Avenue at Trumacar.

Residents were invited to come along to find out about Lancaster City Council services and also enjoy plenty of fun including games, competitions and ice cream which was most welcome on a hot sunny day!

Local police and Lancashire Fire and Rescue were also in attendance.

The Beyond Radio team was there to provide music and announcements.

Greg Lambert hosted with support from Chris Brookbanks, Duncan Moore, Sam Cragg and Roy Ward.

We spoke to some of the organisations who were there on the day.
