On a very early Friday morning in October I travelled down to the
Birmingham NEC with Grumpy the Tawny Eagle, Frodo the Malaysian Wood
Owl, and Heric and Flo the ferrets.
We were headed for the National
Caravan and Motorhome show to help with some promotional work with
Haven Caravan Holidays.
The three days spent there meant meeting over
47,000 people and introducing them to Grumpy, Frodo, and the ferrets
who were all on their best behaviour (although Frodo managed to
decorate the NEC's carpet with his droppings quite well). We even
bumped into a couple of people who have already visited Gauntlet and
recognised the birds!
It was a fun weekend and a successful one,
not only for us, but also for Haven.
Take a look at the pictures to
see Grumpy working the crowd, Frodo looking cute, and myself looking a
fool covered in face paint!
