Your chance to be part of the New Zoological Education Centre

Shuttleworth College

Shuttleworth College’s brand new Zoological Education Centre (ZEC), set in the grounds of the Old Warden Park, is opening this September to animals, students and staff.

To celebrate the opening of this educational first, the college is offering the opportunity for students and staff (past or present) and businesses to support the development by purchasing a leaf on one of the keepsake trees that will be housed pride of place within the aviary and briefing area for all visitors.

The keepsake trees will be filled with leaves and apples that have been engraved with short messages from people wishing to support this brand new development that provides the most up to date animal accommodation for a variety of species.

Leaves can be purchased at £100 per leaf for the silver finish leaf which will allows two lines of up to 16 characters per line (including spaces and punctuation) to be engraved.

For those who want to stand out from the leaves, there is an opportunity to purchase a larger apple for £250 per apple which will allow up to four lines of up to 16 characters per line (including spaces and punctuation) to be engraved.

To purchase your leaf or apple please visit

Following each purchase you will receive an e-certificate to acknowledge your contribution alongside an invitation to attend the official opening of the new ZEC in spring 2020 once this date is confirmed.

Regular e-shots with the latest developments at the ZEC, Shuttleworth College and The Bedford College Group will also be sent to show how people can continue to show their support to students, staff and the animals at the centre.
