Our best visitor was the local wildlife rehab centre... Yes, there were kangaroo joeys in little pouches, a Tawny frogmouth owl, and an echidna running freely around our Guide hall!

Unfortunately I'm not sure their "Education for Conservation" van would make it all the way to Suffolk....
Just wondered what area the van covers. My group is in Cambridge?

We've just arranged to visit Specsavers early next year with Rainbows and Brownies.

We've also been invited to visit Three, where we are going to have a session on accessibility, although they also offer other sessions including internet safety and technology. Brownies and Guides are going to this.

Brownies are attending both as part of their Disability Awareness badge.

how do you go about getting the Cotswold shop to come and visit? Do you just telephone them? Thanks
