Summer of 1977

By Barry Jones

We used to attend the zoo at least 3 times a year as the children grew up, and my son who lives in Congleton now takes his children, and my daughter who lives and works in Dublin expresses a wish to go to the zoo when she visits us. I suppose it is like soccer supporters if they get used to going as a child it stays with them, and they feel it is their zoo.

In the video is my wife Roisin and my son Aidan with my brother Stephen. I was taking the pictures - as it was my big boy's toy!
