PEACOCK FEATHERS

By Gillian Roberts

During mine and my twin sisters childhood the highlight of our School Holidays was going to stay with "Our Auntie Winnie" in Hoole (she always spoil us)!
Her husband "Bill Wade" worked for quite a few years at the Zoo and I remember every holiday, our very special treat was a trip to the zoo for the day which we both loved. Then "Uncle Bill" would meet us at the exit as we were leaving, he'd have 2 Peacock Feathers with him, one for each of us, I thought they were the most loveliest thing I'd ever seen!
I still love Chester Zoo to this day and am a regular visitor with my Grandson Cian who also loves it.
