New Forest Wildlife Park

Brian Pettit and his enthusiasm about all things wildlife, including the perils of capturing it on camera.


Shanna Dymond talking about the work behind the scenes rescuing and caring for injured wildlife in Hampshire.



Show Business

This was a hugely successful trip for the Twinning Association. The weather stayed dry for the four days. A visit to the historic spa town with indulgence at the famous Bettys Tea Rooms which opened in 1919. An excursion to York where a large group visited the Yorvik Viking Centre, which stands on the site where a Viking city stood nearly 1000 years ago.

Thank you to Julie for all her hard work putting the trip together
