Last March we received planning permission to start our new Zoo extension. The new car park and animal enclosures have been built on six acres of land by the river. We will be receiving a pair of African Lions now their enclosure is finished. We had a full Zoo inspection on the 17th November, which included the new animal enclosures on the new extension into our Zoo area. This has increased the area of the Zoo considerably. We look forward to the arrival of the lions, hopefully before Easter. We will move the Rhea, Emu and pheasants into this new area in order to give the animals more room.
