Preschool Roundhouse Opening

James Brokenshire MP Opens Roundhouse

The ADO Mini-Explorers children, staff and parents had a very special guest on Friday 11th May, when Old Bexley and Sidcup MP, James Brokenshire and his lovely wife Cathy, visited the Preschool for the official opening of our Roundhouse. We would like to thank James for taking time out of his very busy schedule in his new role in government as Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, to support us as a local community focussed company.

A Production Line of Talent

All Rounder Tatiana Gets Awarded

Oh yes! Its a production line of young talent here at ADO, as we recently had our 8th Jack Petchey Achievement Award winner. This time the award was presented for mentoring down at our ADO Mini-Explorers Preschool. Well done Tatiana Holland-Clarke, voted by her peers at the Preschool for being very helpful, great fun and more importantly helps the children with their art and cooking projects. 

Senior Manager Kate O'Brien mentioned, " Tatiana is an extremely valued mentor within ADO and we are so pleased she is able to share her expertise with the Mini-Explorers."

Another Achievement Winner

Lewis Sticks To His Tasks To Become A Winner

We are pleased to announce that our 7th Jack Petchey Achievement Award winner is Lewis Stickings. Voted by his peers, Lewis has been Mr Dependable for at least a year now, volunteering on a Saturday to be a key member of the animal care team. Lewis always turns up, yes even when we had thick snow recently, working the Saturday session at both Poets Corner and at the main office, cracking on with his job come rain or shine. Recently completing two weeks of work experience at ADO, Lewis, currently studying at Hadlow Animal Management College, would like to work towards becoming a Marine Biologist eventually. He's pretty handy at catching the Guinea Pigs, so marine life should be easy-peasy! He has pledged his prize money towards building a new custom made enclosure for Bertha, ADO's enormous Burmese Python. Well done Lewis, a top man!

Legend Bob Passes Away

Bob Finally Says Goodbye To Us All

When it comes to legends, Bob the Bearded Dragon was up there with the most popular animals we have ever had working with us here at ADO. Sadly he passed away yesterday evening in his sleep. 

Bob joined us at the very beginning of Animal Days Out and was part of the first ever set of animals we purchased. He was already 5-6 years old in 2011, so he must have been probably 13 years old at the end. A fine innings for a Bearded Dragon!

He was very popular and with his late partner Betty, they were a great double act at events, meeting thousands of people during their formative years and helping many children, young people and adults overcome fears and giving them confidence.. He sired over 30 baby Bearded Dragons with Betty, out living some of them. 

Bob will never be forgotten. RIP Bob.

Silly Sally By Name, Silly Sally By Nature!

Go Fund Me For Sally

Our beautiful therapy horse Silly Sally recently obtained a serious wound which has required around the clock care. Although Sally is on the mend, she still requires treatment, which has all proven to be very costly. As we are a small Not For Profit Community Interest Company, we have set up the Go Fund Me page to try and help cover some of Sally's vet bills and enable us to continue to provide the best possible care for her and get her well again for the benefit of the children, young people and adults that access her through equine therapy.
