MORDEN Hall Alpacas celebrated ten years of Alpaca farming in Guilden Morden at its annual open day at the weekend.

The event, which attracted more than 600 visitors, raised £1000 for various charities in the area.

Peter Garner, owner of Morden Hall Alpacas, said: "We've changed the open day a bit this year, as we usually hold it in May.

"But we've had bad weather in the last couple of years so we decided to move it to September, and it paid off because the weather was superb."

As well as the farm's stud males on show, there were plenty of activities for children to enjoy.

Mr Garner gave a presentation on the selective breeding programme which they have in place, while a range of the knitwear modelled by the handlers was on sale.
