If you are scared of spiders, then London Zoo is running a series of courses for phobics to help us you overcome such fears.
Whilst I am not afraid of the eight-legged monsters, I don’t particularly like them and particularly dislike the way they appear without warning when I am settled down for the evening and watching the telly. They could at least knock before entering the room!
Anyhow, if you want an afternoon of spider love for a slightly eye-watering price of Â£110, send an email to [email protected] and the available dates are: 23rd May; 20th June ; 18th July; 26th September and 10th October
They assure you that no animals, photographs or illustrations are used… until the end part of the course.
SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.
