Our Guinea Pigs
As part of our community work, we are fostering two female guinea pigs, for Squeaky Pigs Animal Rescue based in Wickford, until they can be found a 'Forever Home'. The children will be naming them very shortly and will learn how to take care of them whilst the guinea pigs learn to be calm and confident. They are already settling in very well and love being stroked and cuddled.
Shortlisted names are Bubble & Squeak or Cookie & Crumble. Children will vote in assembly on Monday. (Another nameless weekend!)
