Christmas at The Space Centre

Alpaca fun at The Space Centre in Ashton

Alpacas Bella, Willow and Freya were the star attraction at The Space Centre, in Ashton as part of a winter wonderland attraction.

Judy Ainley, who runs The Alpaca Experience at Ivy Dene Farm, brought the trio in for families visiting as part of the sensory charity's festive event, which also included elves and a Santa's grotto. The festive event, combined with an organised panto, raised more than £1,100 for the charity.
