The 14th annual Cheshire Tortoise Day event was held at the Woodford Community Centre, Stockport. Organised by the five members of the Cheshire Group of the British Chelonia Group, the popular day saw a record attendance of around 700 visitors. Many families arrived to enjoy the day, joined by reptile enthusiasts, vets, tortoise owners and those interested in conservation. Visitors enjoyed educational and natural history aspects as well as fun activities for children.

Julia Davenport, one of the organisers, said: ‘We were overwhelmed with the number of visitors who attended the 2015 event. This shows how seriously many people take chelonian conservation worldwide and the importance of care of their own tortoises.’
