Staffordshire Exotic‘s Society
Following a few invite only meetings and lots of various pets, reptiles and various exotics we are now opening up our meetings to any other keepers, friends or interested people who want to turn up.
Date and time
The date of the next meeting is Sunday 25th September
The doors will open at 7:30. So turn up whenever you want after that.
We have the function room at The White Star pub in Stoke-on-Trent – it’s upstairs.
There is a large pay and display car park next to the pub. This might be free on Sunday evening, but I am not sure as the charges keep changing so check this out before leaving your car.
The pub also has a wide selection of reasonably priced drinks including 10 hand pumps of good cask ale.
All animals are welcome so long as they meet a few conditions. We will at certain times also be putting on specific nights and events, with certain well known reptile enthusiasts turning up with some very unusual and interesting reptiles for a chat and a drink. But this will be a good opportunity to meet a wide range of unusual exotics and reptiles.
·All animals are brought entirely at your own risk, we are in no way responsible for their health, care, behaviour etc
·It is up to you to ensure that all health precautions are taken before the handling of your animal. Anti-bacterial hand wash will be provided.
·All animals must arrive and leave in secure containers.
·No venomous, dangerous or un-controllable animals (if in doubt feel free to ask)
·All animals must be at full health and have been with you long enough so that health problems can be identified to minimise the chances of disease’s being spread.
·Do not bring ill animals or animals that are unwell. If we believe an animal is ill or unwell, we will ask you to remove the animal from the premises to prevent disease spreading or further harm being caused.
·Please use common sense when deciding what animals to bring, do not bring your entire collection every month, one or two will be fine. We only have limited room, so don’t have the room to store your entire collection.
·There are some power sockets in the room (two), so you will need to sort out your own heat packs if required. We have no equipment spare, it is up to you to bring what you think you need. If your animal/s requires a constant temp bringing them to a meet may not be the best option
If in doubt of any of the above, or you wish to confirm feel free to ask via PM, email or on here.
If you want any further information please feel free to contact me (spikebrit) on here.
Basically, we just turn up and have a chat and a drink with like minded people, along with the opertunity to see reptiles and other exotics you might not normally see. We have had some really interesting nights so far.
Things to come
We have various things planned in the future. Such as talks from some well known and interesting reptile and exotic enthusiasts. We will also be offering members discounts at some local shops and on some stock from local large breeders as well.
We look forward to meeting some more keepers and having a general chat with people. Previous meetings have been really good, fun, light hearted evenings and we want this to continue.
