MEET meerkats and other exotic animals at Solihull College this Sunday.
The college’s Land Based Centre, a new state-of-the-art animal care and horticultural facility, opens to the public on June 12 as part of the 10th Solihull Open Gardens.
An array of animals have been donated to the college. Some were confiscated at Heathrow Airport while Countryfile TV presenter Adam Henson donated pigs, sheep and goats, and others came from local sanctuaries and rescue centres.
An opening event will be held in the college and the adjoining Tudor Grange from 10am with entertainment, stalls and refreshments. Warwick Wildlife Centre will have a display, there will be rabbit rescue, dog fly-ball, and a plant sale. For details visit : www.solihullsopengardens.com.
