RGA Convention 2015

A huge thank you to all those who attended the RGA Convention and helped to make it such a fantastic weekend. It was great to see so many new and longstanding members of all ages having a wonderful time together. We would especially like to thank all the volunteers and organisers who gave up their time in order to make the event such a success.

RGA Social Day at Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park

A wonderful time was had by all who attended the recent social day in Birmingham. The weather stayed dry so we had an opportunity to see lots of the park and watched the keepers giving the animals their lunch. The RGA hired a room for a central meeting point and this was put to good use. The children found time to play some games, the adults enjoyed catching up over a cuppa, and we all welcomed a chance to meet up with old friends and some new faces who came along for the day. When asked what he liked best about the trip, Etienne (aged 9) said, ‘The zoo was good, but the best bit was getting to spend time with other children just like me.’ Thank you to everyone who attended, for helping to make the Birmingham Social Day such a success!
