Learn more about our fury, scaled and finned friends with a series of workshops for kids hosted by Pets at Home, in Newbury Park, this summer.

As part of the store’s Kids’ Holiday Pet Club, the free events will teach youngsters how to look after the pets they can see along the aisles in Horns Road.

The ‘Furry Friends’ workshop will focus on small animals, including rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters, while the ‘Scales and Fins’ version will teach children about fish, reptiles and other wildlife.

Store manager, Tony Bentick, said: “Last year’s workshops were extremely popular and we’ve already had lots of enquiries into the next ones, so we’re expecting them to be very busy.”

Children that attend will be given a certificate at the end of the workshops, as well as an activity book, free of charge.
