RESIDENTS of a retirement living community in the Staffordshire village of Essington had some very special guests on Friday when some neighbouring alpacas dropped-in to see them.

The friendly alpacas took a tour of Cherry Tree Court, while residents and staff got acquainted with their new furry friends.

Alpacas Alfie and Roo live in nearby Albrighton. Famed for their soft fur and gentle nature, the inquisitive visitors charmed residents as they took a look around the communal lounge and garden.

Ruth Maburiro, housing and wellbeing manager at Cherry Tree Court, said: “It was a fabulous afternoon. I don’t think any of us had come face to face with an alpaca before and we were all excited to meet them. The residents were surprised by how friendly they were!”
