Hi Carrie! I just wanted to say a very 'bug' thank you on behalf of the Derby College Animal Care Team and all of our students for joining us at our celebration evening last night. The students (and staff!) loved meeting all the bugs. It was a fantastic opportunity for them to see and handle some unusual and interesting species. Thank you so much. We're looking forward to seeing you again!
