true love

By William Brownhill

I started working for Chester Zoo in 2004 as a seasonal worker in the amenities and gardens department. During the second week of work a bunch of new student workers joined our ranks and it was in that ramble of individuals that I met my beautiful wife. We became friends during those summer days of picking litter and parking cars. Over the next four years we returned during the holidays to work, both now students, and our love grew. We often talk about those endless summers and the best jobs we ever had. After watching the BBC Drama 'Our Zoo' we felt privileged to have worked in such a fantastic place and are forever thankful to the founders for fighting to start the Zoo. If not for there determination I may not have met the love of my life.
