YOUNG pet lovers will get the chance to learn more about fish and reptiles this half-term.
Pets at Home in Evesham’s Four Pools Retail Park is offering free workshops in the holidays, with staff on hand to share their knowledge on all things fishy or scaled, teaching children how to care for fish and reptiles in a fun and interactive way.
They will learn all about the animals, what they eat and how to care for them.
Store manager Scott Sangster said: “Both fish and reptiles make extremely rewarding pets. Our workshops give us the chance to teach young pet lovers in Evesham what’s involved when taking on a pet and the best level of care needed to ensure they live happy, healthy lives.
“We want our workshops to be as interactive and hands-on as possible, so children will not only be given some top tips by our colleagues, they’ll also be given the chance to meet the stars of the workshops and help feed them.”
After completing the workshops, each child will receive a certificate and sticker, along with a pet promise card where they make their pledge to look after any pet they have.
