Christmas comes early for Vic!

Christmas came early for Customer Services Team Member, Vic O’Toole, who was named our Employee of the Month!

Vic, who received a certificate and a gift voucher from the zoo’s management team, was nominated by Lower Primates Section Leader Jodie Dryden for the work he does as part of our stores team, where he carries out the daily muck-run as well as helping transport the animal food around the 40-acre site.

Jodie said: “Vic is always going out of his way to make sure keepers’ busy daily routines are that little bit easier, even if it’s something small like returning crates and bags directly back to our sections or putting bins away.

“Speaking with other animal departments, they too say he’s always so helpful and he’s much appreciated by us all.”

We’re also sending congratulations to Trainee Keeper Laura Partridge and Gardener Darris Kiever, who received this month’s notable achievement awards.
