The “Big Day Out” took place at the Suffolk campus of Easton and Otley College.

It was aimed at showing the community and potential students the types of skills you could learn at the land-based college.

Activities on offer included tree climbing, dog agility demonstrations, a livestock show, animal handling, sports activities and members from the sales team got all aboard a ‘fun bus’ to dish out advice on apprenticeships.

External companies such as The Cheese and Pie Man, Barn Farm Drinks and the RSPCA also attended.
