Eastern Alpaca Group regularly runs educational events for alpaca owners as well as a fleece show and halter show once a year.

The committee works very hard to organise and plan events and we like to think our efforts are rewarded with good attendance figures. So if there is something you think would be of interest to the group please let one of the committee members know!
