North Norfolk District Council is launching a competition to name eight new kids born this season, who join the famous Goats on a Slope. The competition is set to be hosted at the popular Greenbuild event in Felbrigg Hall (September 7-8).

There are six billies and two nannies which entrants can submit suggestions for at the event to be drawn at random on Sunday afternoon. The chosen names will be registered on the goats’ pedigree certificates and winners will have the opportunity to meet the kid with the given name at a later date.

The Bagots are an uncommon breed, listed as “vulnerable” by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust. They first arrived Cromer 2016 and have been an effective means of habitat management. So much so, that a herd have been loaned to the Norfolk Wildlife Trust (who are also NNDC’s Chairman Charity of the year) and reside in the Brecks. They have since become a significant tourist attraction, even launching their own merchandise last year.

Greenbuild is the region’s leading annual green lifestyle event and is being held for the 15th year next weekend.
