Exceptional event efforts!

DZG Marketing Assistant Louise Curtis has been named our latest Employee of the Month for her exceptional event efforts!

Louise won special praise for her recent involvement in our open-air cinema nights and the Barnardo’s Big Toddle.

Marketing Manager Andrea Hales said: “Louise is brilliant at helping co-ordinate and deliver our busy events programme throughout the year and received great feedback from staff and visitors with her initiative to sell waterproof ponchos to guests at our cinema nights as soon as the first drops of rain fell, which generated extra funds for the zoo.”

And this week she’s been busy preparing for our popular Under 5’s Picnic Party days which get underway today!

Join us on site today and tomorrow for fun and games in the castle courtyard, where there’ll be puppet shows, balloon modelling and tombolas, plus the chance to get up close to furry friends during animal encounters.

Tickets can be purchased on the door priced £6.50 each.

And if you see Louise, give her a wave and say hello!

We also send congratulations to Customer Services Team Members Harriette Westwood and Mel Adams who received notable achievement awards.
