WOW!  What a year!  We have been really busy since restrictions have lifted. We are normally busy in July but this year was just crazy!  We hope all the children at the schools and nurseries we have visited enjoyed meeting the animals, I know the animals, especially Woody our beautiful Barn Owl is loving all the fuss at attention!

We hope you are enjoying the summer as much as we are! We loved being back at West Vale Park at the start of August and are enjoying being part of Cheshire Libraries Summer Reading Challenge Events. We still have lots of library events booked in, including Winsford, Weaverham, Wharton, Northwich, Ellesmere Port, Barnton, Sandiway and Story house in Chester, contact your library to find out dates and times – PLACES ARE LIMITED !

Unfortunately August is fully booked and we only have limited availability for September and October left! With Halloween fast approaching we are looking forward to carrying out lots of Creepy Crawly Sessions. Book early to avoid disappointment. 

We are taking bookings for the new school term! Whether your class is studying Pets, Nocturnal Animals, Living things or Habitats, there are lots of topics and animals to choose from. Teachers – Make sure you don’t miss out on the date you would like by booking early!

We look forward to seeing you all soon

 Keep Safe!

Hi Lyndsay,
Thank you so much for a brilliant party today – we all loved it!
Party, Little Sutton, August 2021

Hi Lyndsey,
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for last week. I’m sorry I’m only just emailing, but I wanted to get in touch to say how great the session was. We have completed a lot of work following on from your visit, and the children have retained a lot of information. We will be in touch in the early part of the year to hopefully get you booked in again for next Summer.
Primary School, Warrington, July 2021

Hi Lyndsay
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for a brilliant show yesterday, the kids were mesmerised! The animals were adorable and you were so knowledgeable it was really entertaining. My twins weren’t very well on the day unfortunately so only one of them was able to take part, but he really perked up when he got to hold the animals.
Thanks again, would love to book you again next time we have a party.
Party, Thornton, May 2021

Fantastic workshop with lots of interesting information. The Children absolutely loved seeing and holding the animals. They were so excited and engaged. Thank you so much. We hope to see you again in the future.
Infant School, Bebington, February 2020

An amazing and eye opening workshop. Every child was enthralled by the animals and learnt so much information. It was pitched perfectly for their age and all the Children loved how interactive it was. Pre used Animals Take Over before and will continue to do so! Thank you so much. They learnt things I could never have taught/known.
Primary School, Heswall, January 2020
