Vauxhall City Farm

(Photograph) - A lifeline has been held out to Vauxhall City Farm above, which provides a taste of the country for south London children, and is fighting for survival.

The farm, started on wasteland nearly 20 years ago, is home to sheep, goats, ponies, pigs, a donkey, and a duck pond. Each year, thousands of children visit the farm, which gets a grant of Pounds 52,300 from Lambeth Council.

The manager, Hilary Eastwood, was warned before Christmas the council was proposing to withdraw funding because of a threatened Pounds 30 million cut to its budget in 1996-97. But now the council has agreed to defer a decision until later this month.
