Woodbine Farm Alpacas
Woodbine Farm Alpacas will have a stand in our animal area.
Alpacas are members of the South American Camelid family. They are smaller than a llama, standing at 30 – 38″ at the shoulder and are kept for their amazing luxurious fleece. There are two kinds of alpaca; the huacaya which has sheep-like woolliness and the suri that has long spiral locks.
The colour of the fleece ranges from black, brown, fawn, grey and white. Within those colours there are about 23 different shades. They are a herd animal and do not like to be kept on their own, so it is always recommended that a minimum of three alpacas should be kept together.

Fishing 4 Schools
The Duke and Duchess of Grafton have kindly permitted the Game & Country Fair use of their private stretch of the Black Bourne River.
Fishing 4 Schools is an exciting project from The Countryside Alliance Foundation. They teach young people the unique skills of fly fishing and offer them a gateway into the natural world. Run by world famous angler Charles Jardine and his dedicated team, the mission is simple – to educate and enhance young lives.
Fishing for Schools will be demonstrating fly tying, with an opportunity for you to “tie your own fly” at the Game Fair. Qualified coaches will be available for casting tuition.
The project will also be offering coarse fishing, ‘have a go’ and tuition.
