JOHNSONS OF OLD HURST OPEN NEW TROPICAL HOUSE It might have been a month full of wet weather, but that didn’t stop Johnsons of Old Hurst, near Huntingdon, from completing their newest attraction at the family farm. The Tropical House, which they hope to open mid July, already houses resident crocodiles Romeo, Cuddles and Sherbert, plus their two new juveniles. As well as the crocodiles, the building will have ponds and pens for snakes and a board walk entrance. Once opened, visitors will be able to visit the tropic house and discover exotic inhabitants, right in the heart of Cambridgeshire. Johnsons of Old Hurst already has an excellent set up for visiting families, with a woodland walk, play area, reasonably priced cafe and a shop selling everything from home-grown meats, to vegetables, local gins and gifts. Better yet, there’s no entrance fee so everyone can enjoy a great day out for only the cost of lunch (or an ice-cream or two). Keep your eyes on Johnsons Facebook page for regular updates on the opening of their Tropical House, plus other events and special days throughout the year. Find out more by visiting www. johnsonsofoldhurst.co.uk or calling 01487 824658. Johnsons of Old Hurst are at Church Street, Old Hurst PE28 3AF
