LOCALS are invited to a carol service in a barn with real donkeys and possibly sheep in Sutton Scotney.

The Boaz Project, a Christian-based farm scheme for adults with learning disabilities, is hosting the event.

There will be a chance to hear the Christmas story told by Boaz members as well as sing along to carols with the Salvation Army band.

Organisers say everyone is welcome to the service at Hill Farm on the A272, north of Andover Road, on Friday starting at 7pm.
