On behalf of all of the staff and children involved in today’s Reptile Roadshow visit, I should like to send a huge thank you to you both for the wonderful experience we had in school today.
Richard, you did such a fantastic job engaging the children throughout each session. It was intriguing observing the children’s reactions and watching them participate in the roadshow: handling the animals, asking thoughtful questions and many of them finding the courage and confidence to join in with creatures that they had thought themselves afraid to touch!
The children were buzzing with excitement afterwards and we know that your visit will have inspired the children to discover more about reptiles as we launch into our new school project this term. They have all drawn fabulous reptiles this afternoon and printed patterns over the bodies! Tomorrow they are going to write about their experience with you your reptiles ….and I know they won’t be short on ideas!
Sincere thanks again. We hope that your journey home was not too troublesome and we look forward to inviting you to Felsted Preparatory School again sometime in the near future.
Kind regards,
Felsted Preparatory School

Aaron had a wonderful time and all the mothers have been sending me messages telling me that their children could not stop talking about the party!!!
It was such a fun (and educational) afternoon and I know my children went to sleep last night with big smiles on their faces.
Thank you for an absolutely fantastic party!!

The session filled the hour and a half, with the children completely gripped and interested throughout.
Richard talked knowledgeably and informatively about each animal, and the children (and adults) were all able to engage with each of the animals.
There were times where the children were given animals to look after for a period, there were other times when they got to stroke other animals.
It was just a great evening…Thank you Reptile Roadshow!!!

My little girl said it was the best day ever and many of her friends mum’s also messaged to say what a brilliant party it was for the children and adults and they thoroughly enjoyed it, some said it was the best children’s party they had been to! I was slightly apprehensive that the children may start to get fidgety but Richard did an amazing job of captivating their attention the whole time and whilst doing this they were also learning some brilliant facts about the reptiles, I needn’t of worried as not once did a child get up and wander off as they were all so excited for the next bit! Thank you so much again for doing such an excellent party I cannot recommend you enough!


Just a note to say a big “THANKS” for your visit to our class yesterday. The children really enjoyed it and learnt lots ! It has really kick started our Topic ” Why don’t snakes have legs?” and I know this “memorable experience” will help us with our learning this term.

I felt the session was pitched appropriately and you responded to the children well.

I will definitely recommend the “Reptile Roadshow”.

I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for the fabulous party you put on for my daughter Nina’s 6th birthday last weekend (28th January). Everyone absolutely loved it and by everyone I mean parents as well as children. I’ve had so many positive comments since and it was fantastic to watch even the children who’d arrived quite apprehensive about the animals actually getting involved after just a short time. Any concerns I might have previously had about the children staying interested for the duration were completely unfounded as Richard kept them all engaged (and well-behaved!) the whole time. We all enjoyed it so much – the birthday girl especially. So many thanks indeed and if you want to use my comments as a review, or ever need a recommendation, please just ask.

Thanks again and all the best,


Thank you very much for visiting us at Manor Mead with your wonderful selection of reptiles.  The children thoroughly enjoyed handling the animals and loved being able to touch and feel the different textures of the reptiles.

The staff reflected on the visit with glowing enthusiasm. In particular we were very impressed with your intuitive ability to be able to sense what the individual children might be able to handle and how you supported the children who needed a little more encouragement.
You were very in tune with vast range of children’s abilities and handled the unpredictable nature of some of the children’s behaviour with great skill.
We were so impressed with your visit, the children and staff all agree it has been a highlight of the school year so far!
We would definitely book you again in the future.

I would also like to thank Linda for her friendly and warm communication in setting up the visit.
Many thanks once again.
Best wishes



I just wanted to say thank you to Richard for Evan’s party on Saturday.  All of the children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and I have had such lovely feedback from many of the parents. I was amazed how well they all concentrated and Richard kept things fun and informal and managed to keep them all in line – which is no mean feat!
Thanks again, Evan had the best birthday

Dear Richard

A huge THANK YOU for making Asa’s party so special on Sunday.  Despite the amount of children, you still somehow made Asa feel like the true “Birthday Boy”!  All the children (and adults) had an awesome time and we were really impressed how you keep the kids focused and engaged for the duration of the party.

Hi Linda

Please can you pass on my thank you to Richard for Callum’s party today. He had the most fabulous party, and we told Richard but Callum said it was “the best party ever”!! 
Richard was fabulous with keeping 12 rowdy under 9’s in check, your animals were also beautiful and amazing. 
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to everyone we know, it was also the best party Darren and I have ever been too! 
Thanks again
