CHILDREN in Evesham can learn more about their furry and finned friends this summer as Pets at Home hosts its my free pet pals summer activity club.

The workshops will cover the adventures of a gang of small furry animal characters and reptiles, who will illustrate how to look after pets, such as guinea pigs, hamsters, degus, fish and reptiles.

From finding out about the fascinating world of each pet, to learning how best to feed and clean them, children will also get the chance to interact with the animals in store.

After completing the workshops, each child will receive a certificate and stickers, along with a pet promise card where they make a pledge to look after any pet they have according to the five welfare needs, covering habitat, health, wellbeing, diet and behaviour.
