2018 External events which the club is attending with a stall/ pitch:
Can I bring my tortoise to an event?
We run specific and clearly advertised tortoise health check events throughout the year, whereby visitors are encouraged to bring their tortoise(s) along in order to receive informal advice from our experienced volunteers. Please note that tortoises must remain in secure boxes. Although opinion can be given by club members, this must not replace veterinary help, when necessary. Alcohol gel or disposable gloves must be used if tortoises are handled. The club cannot be held responsible for advice and treatment given.
Would Norfolk Tortoise Club be able to attend our event or deliver a talk to our community group?
Please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of your event or activity. Please note that our attendance is based on the availability of volunteers. A small donation to continue the clubs work and payment towards volunteer travel expenses is appreciated.
