On February 3rd a Petting Zoo came to see SWOP for their annual visit. We had meercats, rabbit, guinea pig, snake, skinny pig, tortoise and even a ground squirrel all of which were friendly and used to being handled. It was lovely to see the children’s faces light up with delight at being so close to these friendly creatures. Alice really loved the snake and Hamish was desparate to get into the cage with the meecats. Lauren, who came with the animals, did an excellent job of showing the animals to our young children.

As new parents to SWOP we have found it a fantastic support, outlet and opportunity to learn about our baby with special needs. Meeting other parents in similar situations has been invaluable. The stimulation it provides for our baby has taught us how to create positive play at home and stop focusing on her diagnosis and to remember she is a baby first of all. Great contact to hear of other services too.— Liz
Thanks for its existence and to all the volunteers for their kindness and efforts. We are very fortunate to have this in our area.
