New legislation regarding lamb handling:

On 1 October 2018 new legislation was introduced called the Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018. This legislation looks at protecting the wellbeing of animals in a range of situations including attractions and seasonal events, that until now had limited consistency between establishments. The legislation covers, amongst other things, the separation of any newborn, unweaned or dependent offspring from their mothers for commercial gain. As a result of this, and the fact that Merrist Wood takes animal welfare very seriously, we will not be offering lamb cuddling at our 2019 lambing event. However, there will be ample opportunity to meet the lambs and other species during our lambing weekend. This will be carefully monitored by our dedicated Animal Keeping team and students who will be working directly with the animals. Merrist Wood have successfully been granted the new licence and we are proud of our commitment to animal wellbeing. More information about the legislation can be found here https://www.guildford.gov.uk/animallicensing
