‘It was an amazing experience and very interesting to learn more about reptiles.’
Fun and scales
This session was not for the faint-hearted, however, as residents handled tree frogs, snakes, giant millipedes and African land snails — to name just a few!
Special thanks to ZooLab for delivering this one of a kind therapy session!
‘It was totally therapeutic for the people that use our services.’
Elvis and Priscilla
At Pinewood, residents have been delighted by the arrival of two new housemates — chickens Elvis and Priscilla.
‘The residents love them and have taken ownership of feeding them and making sure they have everything they need.
If it’s too cold to go out, some like to sit at the lounge window and watch them.’
The chickens also help to reduce food waste by eating the leftovers.
Elvis and Priscilla have proved such a hit Pinewood will soon be welcoming two more chickens!
