    Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the talk given by Nina from the The tortoise table. It was very informative and my tort can now enjoy a more varied died as I have now learnt there are more plants and weeds he can eat. I am looking forward to the talk about hibernation later in the year. Thank you Nina and thank you Pete and the team for making us feel welcome.

      Hi Tina, thank you for coming. I am pleased you enjoyed it. I look forwards to seeing you at the hibernation talk.

    Nina’s talk on Tortoise Feeding was brilliantly informative. We have had 2 Horsefield Tortoises for 10 years and feeding has always been complicated. Nina has given me loads more top tips and some desperately needed confidence with changing their diets. Thank you for giving your time Nina and Pete for the use of your shop for the venue.

    Really enjoyed the talk and found it a useful catalyst for me to read around the subject of diet for tortoises as I am lacking knowledge in that area. Found Nina to be wonderfully helpful and supportive when answering questions.

    Thanks for the invite to the talk on Monday – I learnt lots of useful info regarding what to feed my tortoise it was also interesting to talk to other tortoise owners. It isn’t like owning a dog where you meet other owners out for a walk!!
