Kids’ workshops about animal care

FUN with fins and scales is on offer at a Bognor Regis store at half term.

Pets At Home will be holding workshops as part of its Kids’ Holiday Pet Club at its Shripney Road branch.

Staff will be on hand to pass on their knowledge and teach children how to care for reptiles and fish.

The youngsters will be able to meet and greet the ‘stars’ of the event from freshwater and tropical fish to bearded dragons and leopard gheckos.

Store manager Emily Rose Farrelly said: “Fish and reptiles make extremely rewarding pets, especially for older children.

“The free workshops are the chance for the town’s young pet lovers to engage with our colleagues who will be able to offer tips and advice on pet care, while making the workshops fun and interactive.”

Each child who completes a workshop will receive a certificate and sticker.
