Whether you're QPR football fan, an animal lover, or just looking for a fun family day out this Bank Holiday Monday (25) then head to the Hounslow Urban Farm.

Players from the QPR football team will be holding a penalties and training session at the farm grounds on Fagg's Road in Feltham.

This is the second summer fun at the farm which is being held to boost much-needed funds to help drum up enough money so building work can start on the Tropical Zoo animals rescue centre the brainchild of father and daughter Tony and Alice Purdy, formerly housed a Syon Park.

 

People of all ages will have the chance to meet police dogs and board a fire engine with firefighters from local stations.

New to this year are pony rides and pony grooming sessions.

Other fun things to do include animal encounters with your favourite furry friends including guinea pigs, rabbits, goats, and reptiles including snakes, ferret and pig races, owl displays, tractor rides, face painting and more.

A charity music festival held at the farm in May helped raise a smashing £9,000 but with a huge £1m plus target there is a long way to go.           

The event is on Monday, August 25, from 10am to 5pm.

Tickets cost £7.50 adult, £6 child and £24 for the family.
