Remembering Cllr David Vickers

We are extremely saddened to hear of the death of Councillor David Vickers, a serving member of the Dudley and West Midlands Zoological Society Limited Board of Trustees since 2017.

David, who was also the deputy leader of Dudley Council, was a staunch supporter of our conservation work with some of the rarest animals in the world and his contribution to the charity was greatly valued.

On behalf of everyone at Dudley Zoo and Castle we send our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.

As a mark of respect for the 73-year-old, who died this morning following a short-term battle with illness, the Black Country flag is being flown at half-mast from Dudley Castle today.
