The Zoo holds many memories for both sides of the family. Both my Gran and Grandad, and other family members have worked at the zoo and my grandparents have a bench dedicated to them near the Chinese gardens. We visit everytime we go, the last time there was a gentleman sat on the bench, who thought we were looking at the Rhododendrons, which happens to be mention on the first page of the Our Zoo book. This made us laugh.
