Hampshire aquatic centre re-opens following fire


Creature Comforts and Aquatic Centre has announced that its fish house will re-open on February 4 following the devastating fire that ripped through part of the store last September.

The family-run shop, based in Totton, Southampton, is holding an open event over that whole weekend to celebrate. The refurbished fish house will be opened by TV presenter Chris Packham on the Saturday at 10am. 

There will some fantastic raffle prizes available, along with free gifts, and discounts available throughout the store.

A number of trade specialists will be in store to offer advice on the set-up and running of aquariums and the general care of aquatic animals.

Luckily all of the shop's livestock, which included thousands of fish, plus rodents and reptiles, survived the fire.  

Creature Comforts and Aquatic Centre is at 13-15 Ringwood Road, Totton, Southampton, SO40 8DA. Tel 023 8086 8529.
