Supporting city bid

We’re getting behind Dudley’s bid submission for city status as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in our own special DZC way!

Zoo Director Derek Grove said: “Similar to its Zoo and Castle, Dudley is in the process of change and is working hard to make the most of the opportunities the 21st century can deliver, while celebrating and not losing touch of its unique heritage.
 
“Dudley has so much to offer for a great day out, with the leisure attractions at the base of Castle Hill already welcoming over 800,000 people annually, not to mention the multitude of green spaces which help make the area such an attractive place to live, work and relax.
 
“The city status bid is the ideal opportunity to showcase to the nation what we here in Dudley can deliver and can offer in the future. It’s an exciting time for the borough.”
