Animal fun for schoolchildren

Have your say

YOUNGSTERS can beat school holiday boredom at a series of animal workshops.

Pets at Home stores in Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster are hosting free sessions on how to look after little critters every day at 2pm until May 6.

The events have been organised to coincide with National Pet Month and will dish out expert advice on caring for hamsters, degus, gerbils and guinea pigs.

After completing the workshops, each child will receive a certificate and sticker, along with a pet promise card.
