Louise takes top title

DZG Marketing Assistant Louise Curtis did such a grand job of co-ordinating a toddlers’ trek that she’s walked away with a top title.

Kingswinford mum-of-two Louise, who has worked here for nearly 11 years, was named Employee of the Month after managing the two-day Barnardo’s Big Toddle last month and taking on extra responsibilities in the zoo’s marketing team.

Her manager Andrea Hales said: “Louise is an asset to the marketing team and co-ordinated the annual sponsored walk for toddlers around the zoo brilliantly.

“She also came in extra days to cover colleagues on annual leave and made sure the needs of the marketing department were met.”

Louise, pictured feeding our male giraffe Kubwa, was awarded a certificate and gift vouchers.

And congratulations to Team Leader Matt Millard, of the Customer Services Team, and Senior Bird Keeper Ben Vanes who were also recognised for notable achievement.

Great job Louise, Matt and Ben!
