Private tour of the British Wildlife Centre

24 April @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Are you passionate about British wildlife and want to know more about our different native species?

Why don’t you join us on a completely private tour of the British Wildlife Centre on the 24th of April?  It takes a couple of hours and starts at 230  The Centre is closed to the general public that day so it would just be a keeper plus 12 SFTG members.  I’m told that because it’s such a small group interaction with the animals is amazing.  This really should be a great afternoon. Over 40 native species are lovingly cared for by David Mills and his team in East Surrey (British Wildlife Centre, Eastbourne Road, Newchapel, Lingfield, Surrey RH7 6LF).

David has run the centre since 1997 when he converted his old dairy farm into a long-standing dream of opening his own zoo of native species focussing on nationwide breeding programmes to introduce nearly extinct species.

We will have the opportunity to see the animals up close during this informative and fun private tour. As well as meeting old (and making new!) friends this will be a fabulous day out in a superb environment!

PLUS Karen, our lovely membership secretary and her partner Ed have invited us to their gorgeous smallholding which is about 15 minutes drive away, for tea:coffee, cake and goat cuddles.  So she can get cake quantities right  can you put  a note on your booking form to say you’d like to eat afterwards.  No set amount to pay but there will be a donation box

PLUS we’re planning on trying to arrange car sharing so please email catrionabush@gmail.com if you’d like this.

Fun fact: Dame Judi Dench can often be spotted there as she lives nearby and David is her partner!
