IT’S not everyday you see a life-size model of a cow when you pop into the bank.

But that’s what customers were met with in the reception of Barclays in Havant.

The cow was from Show Me A Farm, a company based in Hayling which sells books, DVDs and other products to do with farming. It is part of a Christmas promotion by Barclays to support local businesses.

Branch manager Chris Doyle said: ‘Every Tuesday throughout November we invited a local business in to display its products, raise awareness of the service they provide and even take orders.

‘This will continue into December and peak with two business in everyday during the week starting December 16. We even have local musical talent, including the Male Voice Choir, and a cappella group.’

Lesley Ede, director of Show Me a Farm said ‘It’s a brilliant idea. When I explain to people their reaction is one of amazement and fascination.

‘It’s very clear that the people behind Show Me a Farm are very enthusiastic,’ said Mr Doyle.

‘I’m delighted to support this business. It’s been wonderful watching our customers’ reactions.’
