Grandma at the Zoo

By Morna Cameron-Swan

I remember going to the Zoo on Christmas Eve with my Mum and Dad when I was a little girl of about 5 years old. My Grandma had come to stay from London and we treated her to a trip to the local zoo. She was a little old so we hired a wheelchair and pushed her really fast around the zoo as there was hardy any one else there as they were all Christmas shopping.
She thought it was really funny seeing the zoo at high speed in a wheelchair.
In the same decade I also recall a trip to see the November fireworks in the field at the back of the zoo. Apparently I cried through the whole show as the bangs were a little loud!!!
