The Shirley experience

Our experienced staff are at the heart of our business. Their team work, experience and professionalism mean that from the moment you walk through the door, pick up the phone or log on to our web site you know you are going to be looked after and given the best advice possible.

Our team realise that looking after your pet, whether it’s a shoal of neons, a chameleon or a pond full of prize winning koi, is extremely important to you and giving you the right advice and the correct equipment is vital to their and your happiness. That’s why we put a lot of effort into making the Shirley experience unbeatable.

About our company

We have always been a family run business offering exceptional customer service and a quality assured product range. There are no aspects of the fish keeping hobby we do not cater for and we make sure that all our staff are kept up to date with the most recent developments in our industry.

Our exceptional standards have been carried across to our reptile department which has grown tremendously over the last 15 years to become one of the region’s most reputable reptile departments.

Green credentials

We are always on the lookout for methods of making our company more environmentally friendly. Our online delivery service always re-uses packaging wherever possible and our purchasing department is constantly looking for new ways of improving our green credentials such as recycled packing materials and cardboard boxes.

Our new centre is run almost entirely on LED lighting, our koi ponds are heated using highly efficient air source heat pumps, we use rain water to top up our outside ponds and tropical tanks wherever possible. Our Reverse osmosis waste water is recycled once more through the system and then finally used for our coldwater systems as well as watering our pond plants. Our staff are sustainable sourced and run entirely without batteries…although they do need to walk over to Becketts farm and refuel at the sandwich counter from time to time!
