DZG staff celebrated the end of our busy summer season with a friendly football match and party in the castle courtyard.
A team of zoo keepers took on the shop staff in the after hours game, and were cheered on by the rest of the staff on the sidelines.
And the customer services team reigned triumphant at 6-2.
Assistant Curator, Jay Haywood and zoo keeper team player, said: “The party is an annual event where we say thank you to all our staff for their hard work over the summer season.
“This time the customer services team won, but we’ll be trying to regain our crown next year!”
