Staff have said farewell to Customer Services Supervisor, Marie Brittle, after almost a decade at DZG.
Marie, who was based in the Safari Gift Shop, helped co-ordinate Outreach visits across the region and on-site events such as the annual Under-Fives days, courtyard Toddles and Santa’s Grotto.
CEO Peter Suddock pictured with Marie at her leaving party said: “Marie’s was the first face many of our visitors saw when they came on site and she got to know most of our regular members by name over the years.
“She will be much missed and we wish her all the best in her new career, and for her wedding as she’s getting married next month.”
Marie, who is moving to an administration role within the care industry, said: “It’s going to be very strange not working at the zoo after all these years, but I plan to stay in touch and keep up with all the latest developments.”
