Sophie Neville ~ otters
Our tame otters, who romp through the pages of Funnily Enough, are still going strong. The have a huge number of fans including Her Majesty the Queen, HRH The Prince of Wales, Sir David Attenbrough, Joanna Lumley, David Bellamy, Angela Ripon, Michael Meacher MP and Michael Fish the weather man.

In 2013 they appeared on ‘Wild’ on CBBC
at the CLA Game Fair and Royal Welsh Show and in the Sunday Telegraph. 
They also enjoyed meeting people in Devon at the Honiton Show,
at Frampton-on-Severn in Gloucestershire and The Romsey Show in Hampshire.

Parrots, pirates and fancy dress ~

I f you can see yourself as a porcupine,
a Pink Lady

or even a panda,

whether you go to cold party

a gold party

or just want to dance, 

dressing up will raise the spirits and must be good for the health.

If you can imagine yourself as Captain Flint, the town of Hastings 
in East Sussex is hosting a massive fancy dress party this Sunday 21st JulyHastings Pirate Day ~ They promise a parrot-flying display and a pirate ship donated by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers NFL American football team. Beware, there may be more than 15,000 pirates in town - they are current world record holders' for this sort of thing.
