Blog | 7th Eastleigh Cubs visit Nightingale Pets
03/12/2017 By David Patrick


On Thursday 30th November, members of the 7th Eastleigh Cub Pack visited Nightingale Pets in Eastleigh for an animal carer session.

The young members chose this activity session themselves, as part of our #YouthShaped programme.

The session was enjoyable and interesting for all participants that were involved.

It was more of a unique opportunity compared to other places that offer animal carer sessions, as they mainly focus on reptiles; but they do have a few cute and cuddly pets as well for those who are not too keen on reptiles.

The pets that were involved in the session included a Boa Constrictor, a Chameleon, an Anole, a Scorpion, Rats, Canaries, Budgies, and they also had the opportunity to see Python Feeding.

It was also a special evening, as three of our newest members got invested into the cub pack as part of one of the most unique investiture ceremonies I’ve done, which included the sound of birds chirping and a dog barking in the background, which was quite distracting.

If anyone is interested in participating in this alternative animal carer session with their section, then you will be able find out more information on their website:; which has an enquiry page for you to contact them directly.
