THE TORTOISE GARDEN
Cornwall's PREMIER sanctuary for the care, welfare, conservation and rescue of Tortoises
Hello tortoise people,
my letter is a little late this year but as the sanctuary will not be open again to the public, I took my time over it. I hope all your tortoises have made it through hibernation safely and have all been out enjoying our warm spell. I am sorry to all those people who do not know the sanctuary has been closed by the council and have been turning up. I cannot arrange private visits either so the only people I am allowed to have visit are those who have a tortoise living here. I apologise to all of you who would like to see the tortoises but it is out of my hands and my priority is keeping the tortoises safe. I would like to thank all of you who responded to my request for suitable people to take some of my tortoises on a re-homing basis. I had a massive response and I am still making decisions about who will be re-homed and who will take them on, so don’t worry if you have not heard from me. I just want the best homes for my tortoises. Anyone who has a tortoises living here please do not worry. I won’t be re-homing yours unless I have talked to you about it first so if you haven’t heard from me, your tortoise will be staying with me. This is a very sad time for me as I have spent years building up my beautiful collection only to have some local council official make it impossible for me to carry on. This will be my last newsletter and after a couple of months I will be removing my web site from the internet. I would like to thank you all for your amazing support, all those who visited and enjoyed the sanctuary and everyone who kept me going through the winter with donations into the PayPal account. I will be keeping that open for a while so any donations will be gratefully appreciated.
I will still be on the end of a telephone if anyone needs advice or assistance, grateful thanks and very good wishes to you all from Joy.
