Pet store's lessons for Cub Scouts
A PET shop is offering help to Cub Scouts working towards their animal care badges.
Pets at Home in Brighton Road, Redhill, is putting on workshops where children can receive advice from store advisers on how to care for pets, part of their set badge criteria.
To gain an Animal Friend Badge, Beaver Scouts must learn the correct type and quantities of food to feed fish and small animals and the right kind of home to keep them in.
For an Animal Carer Badge, Cub Scouts must also learn how to recognise common illnesses in dogs, cats, gerbils, guinea pigs, fish, birds and rabbits.

Store Manager John Gaston said: "Our in-store pet advisers are always happy to share their knowledge of animal care.
"The free workshops will help Beaver and Cub Scouts find out all the information they need."
Simon Carter assistant director at The Scout Association said: "Having a trusted place that our leaders can go to that helps our Cub and Beaver Scouts learn about the correct way to care for animals is of real value to our leaders."
