Compare the Meerkat at Richmond Nantwich

Compare the Meerkat at Richmond Nantwich

Residents at Richmond Village Nantwich had some very unusual
visitors recently as two tortoises, a skunk, an owl and a 6 month old meerkat
called Tamu came to visit, courtesy of Zoo2U.

Whilst the tortoises, owl and skunk were all quiet and well-behaved,
Tamu the meerkat was rather more curious and insisted on exploring as much as
he could. Tori, his handler explained that he enjoyed playing with her pet Chihuahua
and was learning lots of new tricks, including how to stand upright; a skill
that apparently they have to learn from their elders! Tamu then went on to
visit Residents in their rooms including Mrs Betty Bostwick who said “What a
wonderful little thing he is!” Tori went on to explain that he only had one ear
as his mother has been a little too enthusiastic when she had petted him as a
baby!

Louise Trigger, Senior Care Assistant added “He is so cute –
can I take him home?”

Everybody decided that they did not need to compare any more
meerkats as Tamu was definitely their favourite!

Silver Sunday is an annual day of fun and free activities for older people across the UK. Led by The Sir Simon Milton Foundation, it celebrates the value and knowledge they contribute to our communities while combating loneliness and isolation. 

Held on the first Sunday of October through the Sir Simon Milton Foundation, Silver Sunday is a national celebration of older people and their contribution to communities. Through a variety of free activities Silver Sunday is offering people over 65 a chance to keep active in body and spirit, try new things, meet their neighbours and, ultimately, overcome loneliness.

As part of Silver Sunday, Matt Johnson from the Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery has kindly offered to come and provide a talk about the ‘Nuneaton Blitz.’ He will also be bringing items to look at.
