Alpacas meet old friends at Hampshire care home

A resident with an alpaca

Baby alpacas met friends of all ages on Saturday at The Lawn, our care home in Hampshire, as part of their summer fete.

This follows the popularity of their first visit on Easter Monday, which was organised by the home’s Activities Coordinator Sally Green, after animal-loving residents had enthused about meeting the alpacas.

Guests at the summer fete also enjoyed cream teas and were kept entertained with bric a brac stalls, a raffle, hook a duck and much more.

Julie Hynd, Home Manager at The Lawn, said: “We’re always delighted when people come to get to know us, and find out what we do.”

The Lawn is a residential care home for older people, situated in a stunning Georgian building which was once the home of the novelist Elizabeth Gaskell. Its dedicated, caring and enthusiastic staff provide a warm, friendly modern home for residents, who are supported to stay active and remain independent. Find out more about The Lawn and book a visit.
