My mum worked at the zoo

By Margaret Parkinson (nee Jackson)

My mum worked at the zoo as part of the catering team in Oakfield House, or as we called it the ‘big house’.

This picture was taken in the 1950s – my mum (the lady on the bottom right) was very fond of George Mottershead (man at the left of the picture), and Mrs Mottershead.

My mum used to come to the zoo on her bike, she absolutely loved working here.
