A cavalcade of ferrets are off to the races this Sunday when Suffolk Owl Sanctuary hosts a special ‘Ferreting for Fathers’ event in anticipation of Father’s Day.

In addition to some top-class ferret racing, the sanctuary promises to offer activities for the entire family, including three flying displays exhibiting more than 80 owls and other birds of prey.

Amongst the other attractions, on top of the usual popular facilities such as the sensory garden, bug hotel, bird hide and Discovery Centre, are a woodland walk with wildlife ponds, feeding sessions for the red squirrel and meerkat colonies, and a children’s safari trail, featuring a free gift provided for every participating child.

The event is set to take place from 10am until 4.30pm at Stonham Barns in Pettaugh Road, Stonham Aspal. A full schedule and details are available from www.owl-help.org.uk or alternatively, please contact 0845 680 7897.
