A company based in Norton St Philip that holds animal education parties for children is inviting schools, community groups and children in Frome and surrounding area to name their newborns.

Magic Moments Animal Parties has had two new arrivals in the past few months – a baby reindeer and a Joey, a baby wallaby – but neither have been given a name.

Sparky, who runs the company, said he would like schoolchildren to think of names for his staff to pick from and win themselves a free visit from some of the animals.

He said: "The reindeer was born a couple of Saturdays ago and is happily settling into life on the farm with her parents, Topsy and Ed.

"The Joey appeared out of its mother's pouch, Bonnie, a couple of months ago and we think he is between four to six months old – he's a lovely little fella.

"We would love as many entries as possible so that we have lots of choice and a great variety."

The company holds parties at the farm and at people's homes, and has a variety of animals including llamas, alpacas, micro pigs, pigmy goats, miniature Shetland ponies and a donkey.

The winning school will be chosen by Sparky and his team and all the runners-up who enter will also receive a 50 per cent discount on their next school visit or party.

Sparky added: "It's only fair that everyone is a winner, we get two great names and everyone who enters gets something for their trouble."

To submit a name send the entry to Sparky, Downfield Farm, Farleigh Road, Norton St Philip BA2 7NG, email sparkybloodsworth1@msn.com, or for more information call Sparky on 07743 471816.
