‘Just to say what a great party it was last Sunday. The animal encounter was such fun for the children and adults! Nicky & Gary were great with the children and made Anna feel really special on her Birthday. The animals were wonderful and the children loved the talk from Gary about each animal and joining in answering questions. Everyone who came to the party has been talking about the animal encounter. Please pass on our thanks’

What a super time our children had - your staff were excellent, considering the time we had available. We cannot praise them enough and would definitely use them again.

Mrs G Jones - Charleston Primary School, Dundee

‘We had a handler and three donkeys visit our school as the children were learning a story about a donkey. The visit was superb, the donkeys were amazing, so calm and well behaved and they allowed the children to both groom and lead them. The children learnt a lot from the visit and the Handler was knowledgeable and accommodating. Thanks for a fabulous afternoon!’
