Rainbows fed fish, held rabbits and stroked a bearded dragon during a tour of a pet store.

Ten 1st Leverington Rainbows, aged 5 to 7, visited Pets At Home as part of their Roundabout the World badge. They were accompanied by their leaders and Wisbech Cat Welfare volunteers.

Store members, Leanne and Will, showed the girls all the animals, letting them feed the fish, hold the rabbits and guinea pigs and stroke the bearded dragon.

Rainbows leader Mathilde Tranter said: “A fantastic time was had by all.”
