They’ve got their very own perch with stunning seaside views and plenty of greenery, along with family members to keep them company.

But what six billy and two nanny goat kids born this season are missing are names.

Visitors to the Greenbuild green living event this weekend (September 7-8) can put forward their own naming ideas for the Bagot goats, who will join the goats already grazing the cliffs at Cromer as part of North Norfolk District Council's 'Goats on a Slope' programme.

The names will be chosen at random at Greenbuild, which takes place at Felbrigg Hall, on Sunday afternoon, and winners will have the chance to 'meet' the goat that gets their name at a later date.

The first Bagot goats came to Cromer in 2016, and they have since proven a hit with visitors, while also being an effective way to manage the cliffside habitat.
