A llama centre in West Walton opened its doors to visitors to show off their herd as part of a national day to celebrate this gentle animal.

The open day a coincided with National Llama Day which began in 1932 in Canada.

Tina Gambell, of Faster Lente Llamas, which offers days out for children, hen parties, individuals and glamping, said: “We opened our gates for people to meet the friendly and inquisitive herd of llamas.

“People could learn all about them, their origins, their uses and their very individual personalities.”

Tina is a director of the British Llama Society and editor of their glossy quarterly magazine, Llama Link.

She set up her centre in 2013 with her husband Chris, with four llamas.

It has now grown into her own herd with many opportunities to meet and greet the animals.

The aim is to make it a base where people can sit and relax, walk the llamas and enjoy the peace away form the bustle of modern day life.

She has llama sales, a blog, stud services, training tips, adoption scheme, husbandry tips, photos, videos and llama-cams.
