1966

My first and only visit (so far).

By David Lambert

On a Saturday in 1966 exactly two weeks after England had won the World Cup, I visited the Zoo.
Mum, Dad, and me, had just spent a fortnight in Wales on Holiday, and decided because we were so close to visit on our way home.
Having recently returned from a three week Holiday, last night I watched the first five episodes of Our Zoo, looking forward to watching the last one tonight.
With all the doom and gloom around today, I thought what a inspirational story.
I hope to visit again very soon with my Grandchildren.
