FAMILIES in Drumchapel are being invited to take their children to a series of fun and free workshops at Pets at Home this month. 

The workshops will focus on caring for gerbils and teaching children how rewarding the small furry creatures can be.

The sessions will run as part of the My Pet Pals Activity Club at the Drumchapel shop during the half-term school holiday.

Gordon Wallace, store manager at Pets at Home, said: “Gerbils are active, sociable and low maintenance, making them an ideal first pet for kids. 

“Our free in-store workshops are a chance for Drumchapel’s young pet lovers to learn more about gerbils, and our colleagues will be on hand to offer tips and advice, whilst making the workshops fun, interactive and hands on.”
