YOUNG carers and their families had the chance to enjoy nature together with a trip to River Bourne Community Farm on Sunday.

The visit was part of a project run by The Conservation Volunteers that offers respite trips for young people aged six to 25 who have the responsibility of caring for a family member.

The children got the chance to explore the farm, meet the mayor of Salisbury, John Collier, enjoy hot dogs for lunch and make crafts including key rings and Christmas decorations.

They made maps of the farm, took part in a quiz, met the animals and saw a bug hotel being put in place.

More than 70 young carers and their families enjoyed the event.
