Updated November 2021
As the world continue to try and get back too normal but with the coming issues that winter may bring, we will continue to try and keep you as up to date as we can with the Centre and Covid-19. Below we have covered most of the areas of questions but if you have any other queries please dont hesitate to drop us an email.
Feathers and Fur Falconry Centre has now completed its build of the new centre at Moss End Garden Village, however we are currently in the process of applying for planning permission and then our zoo license before we can open to the general public to walk in and simply view the birds. We have however opened the main entrance and gift shop so you are able to see a few birds and come and have a chat with the falconers and volunteers, plus the gift shop is full of amazing Owl and Bird of Prey gifts for all those that love birds.
In March 2021 we did received our animals activities license and we are supper happy to say we ARE able to do all our hands on experience sessions. Which is fabulous news and means that you are able to come along and fly the birds, lease see below.
Feathers and Fur Falconry Centre is pleased to announce that we are now up and running with all of our EXPERIENCE SESSIONS and OFF SITE TALKS. These take place 6 days a week, so please do have a look at our experience session page if you where thinking of purchasing a gift voucher or drop us an email if you have a voucher and would like to come along and fly the birds. This is a fabulous way to see the centre and fly the birds.
Have a voucher but not yet booked your date – all vouchers purchased before March 2021 are being extended free of charge. You do not need to contact us for the additional extension we have your voucher details and will make amends in the system. You will however need to contact us in the ways mentioned in your cover letter with your voucher to book your session in the diary. Please note though dates will fill up quickly so don’t leave it until the last minute to get your session in the diary.
Refunds for vouchers – we are currently not issuing refunds for Experience Session vouchers as we would still love you to come along on the session. If you however feel that you will not be able to make your session such as travel restrictions then please do get in touch. Please note refunds will only be made at the centres discretion.
Off Site Talks or Therapy Sessions, these include Scout, Brownie, Beavers and Cub talks, Care Home Visits and School Visits.
Feathers and Fur Falconry Centre is happy to say that we are out and about meeting groups again. Covid-19 safety measures can be put in place such as face shields and distancing along with hand gel and is happy to work with your own safety measures. Obviously though over winter covid numbers may rise and if you are unable to meet in person perhaps consider one of our zoom meetings. These are 45 min sessions and can be done to suit all groups. Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to discuss this further.
Sale of Frozen Food
We are pleased to say that we are able to sell the Frozen Food for reptiles and raptors. Simply drop in to our gift shop within the Falconry Centre at Moss End
How you can help.
So here at Feathers and Fur Falconry we are very proud of the work that we do and the new centre we have created. Whilst we wait for the planning permission and the zoo licence I am sure you can appreciate that belts are still very tight and every penny matters, so with that in mind if you did want to help us out at all perhaps consider purchasing a gift voucher for either yourself or as a present, all vouchers bought now have a 12 month expiry dates. So there is plenty of time to use them. And it will feel even more special knowing that you have helped us get through this awful time as the beautiful Owls and Hawks swoop to your fist.
If you follow us on social media, don’t just ‘like’ our posts, but perhaps leave us a comment or share our post. This gives us a wider audience and means that more people will know that we are here. Tag us in posts if you are posting memories of coming to the centre or if you spot someone on social media asking for gift ideas, or things to do with the kids we are always grateful of a mention. Word of mouth is our best way to be known.
Inevitable I am sure you may have a question that I haven’t answered, if so please do not hesitate to drop me an email or message, or give us a call and we will be happy to answer any (centre and bird related, we are not so good on 80’s pop music) questions you may have.
