Living close to the zoo

By Margaret Parkinson (nee Jackson)

This is me at about 11/12 years old. I visited the zoo nearly every day, as my mum worked at the zoo and we lived just down the road. We lived so close that at night my sister and I could hear the sea lions!

My sister still comes to the zoo with her grandchildren; I’ve not been for a while now but hope to come back soon with the family.
