Loyal Laura!

Keeper Laura Partridge has been praised for her loyalty to DZC as she’s named our latest Employee of the Month.

Laura, has been a familiar face in our Customer Services team for many years, where she usually leads our Little Keeper for a Day experiences.

For the last few years she’s also volunteered on our Upper Primates section and during lockdown offered her help.

Zoo Manager, Matt Lewis, who nominated Laura for the award, said:

“Laura’s continued commitment to DZC is commendable and her assistance on our Upper Primate section during lockdown was very much appreciated by us all.”

We’re also saying congratulations to Laura, who has secured a temporary maternity cover keeper position over the coming months.

Notable achievement certificates were also given to Customer Services Team Members Anthony Wingfield and Lois Butler.
