Here at Les Fragnes Loisirs, we’ve just started the Alpalama Club. The logo is an adaptation of the superb logo Roger Fereday ( drew for us recently.

Here it is:

Anyone can join, although it’s mainly aimed at youngsters (up to 16 or so). Just let us know your name, birthday date and your email or postal address, and you’ll receive a birthday card from our llamas and alpacas, and a periodic newsletter, keeping you up to date with what’s been going on here with our animals. And it’s free! You’ll find the form to fill in on our French website at

What’s in it for us? Customer satisfaction. We want to keep in touch with our visitors and hope that they’ll come to see us again. If all goes according to schedule, there will be new camelid arrivals every year, and we have ongoing plans to develop the facilities here and add to already ever-increasing menagerie. (Nine baby rabbits arrived a week ago – see what I mean about ‘ever-increasing’!) There will be new activities for the children, and for adults too. And once my spinning gets going properly, there’ll be the chance to buy handspun yarn and felted items made from our llamas’ and alpacas’ wool.

We have some Alpalama Club goodies – keyrings, rulers and fridge magnets so far, but the range will soon grow. Watch this space.

Go Alpalama!
