Some beautiful alpacas from Wymondham Alpacas & Llamas visited us at Corton House on Friday...
Big thanks to the wonderfully-named Clifton and Galahad and their handlers who came along to Corton House to meet us. The alpacas are apparently best friends, although Clifton does all the work and Galahad just follows along. Clifton even donates blood to help baby alpacas - what a superstar!
We love having animal visitors here at Corton House; the benefits of spending time with animals are well documented and the proof is in the residents' smiles!
Some tenants from Brakendon Close, for whom the lure of an alpaca party was too strong, popped across to the gardens at Corton House to meet them too. It was nice for tenants and residents to be able to catch up with one another while enjoying the company of these lovely creatures.
