A free pet workshop will take place this half term for children in Lowestoft.

Parents have been invited to bring their youngsters for a series of free workshops at Pets at Home, at North Quay Retail Park, as store bosses attempt to educate the next generation of pet owners on how to care for their pets responsibly.

The Creature Care themed workshops will begin next week on October 22 and will run until November 2, teaching children how to care for a range of different pets.

As well as getting the opportunity to interact with pets in store, children will also learn about the five welfare needs, including shelter, food and water, good health, appropriate company and the right living environment.

Tina King, store manager, said: “Our Creature Care workshops are designed to teach young pet lovers about responsible pet ownership, while having lots of fun at the same time.

“Our expert colleagues will offer tips and advice on pet care, while making the workshops both interactive and educational, offering an ideal activity over the half term break.”
