The world’s smallest sheep stops in at St. Wilfrids

Weighing in at just 2.2lbs, the residents of St Wilfrids care home could have been forgiven for missing Bobby, the star attraction at their recent farm day.

The little lamb actually proved to be a huge hit with all of the residents, who had the opportunity to meet, pat, groom and feed him as he sat on many of their laps during his visit. The record-breaking lamb has become somewhat of a celebrity since his arrival at since arriving at Greenland’s Farm Village in Carnforth, gaining plenty of international media attention.

The activity was just one of a wide range of activities that form part of the recently launched Caring Homes ‘Living’ programme. The new initiative is a structured activities programme based around a ‘five a day’ approach of providing activities that always meet either social, emotional, cognitive, sensory or physical needs as part of the holistic program of care delivered at the home.

Situated just two miles from Lancaster in the picturesque village of Halton-on-Lune, St Wilfrids Hall is a beautiful country house that has been sympathetically converted to provide residential and nursing care for up to 36 elderly people.
