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
