They wrote to the zoo…

Youngsters from an Evesham Pre-School have sent us a lovely letter asking us to send them a pet!


Inspired by Rod Campbell’s popular book, Dear Zoo, the children from The Lenches Pre-School in Church Lench, created their own version using painted hand and footprints, artistically transformed into animals.  

DZG Media and Communications Officer, Rachel Hickman, pictured above, said: “We really enjoyed looking at their lovely paintings depicting one of our favourite books and are grateful they took the time to write to us.

“Unfortunately we couldn’t send them a real pet, but our keepers did send them photographs and information about some of our favourite animals on site. We hope they are able to visit us soon and see them in real life.”
