‘Pre Hibernation Health Check 2016′

We will be holding a pre hibernation check on Sun 2nd October 2016 at the sanctuary from 10am until 4pm. We encourage all our members to bring their tortoises to get weighed and measured prior to hibernating. This will help you understand the health of your tortoises prior to making the decision to hibernate them. If your tortoises are under weight we may recommend you keep them awake this winter in order to keep them healthy. All pre hibernation health checks are free of charge to members.

The date for tortoises coming in for hibernation is Sunday 6th November 2016. Hibernation cost – £14 per month per tortoise box. Wake up day is Sunday 26th February 2017.

Please see the below address and contact details should you need to contact us.
