Now’s your chance, as Cherrydown Vets, in Cherrydown West, Basildon, is throwing open its doors for a family fun day on Sunday, June 9.

“We’re all looking forward to hosting this fun-filled family day and making it an afternoon for everyone to enjoy.
“There will be a ‘meet and greet’ with exotic animals, a fun dog show and visitors will be able to take a guided tour of the practice – providing there are no emergency case, of course!
