"We would just like to say a big thank you! We all had a great day on Sunday 22nd May 2016. We enjoyed the team building games and loved meeting the animals and keepers who showed how much they love and respect the animals they care for. The food was lovely and we would also like to say a big thank you to Kelly who stayed with us for the day she was great!

Again thank you so much, we found it a good way to bond and build friendships up!" 

Sarah Puxley, Little Pals

"Jez, our host was brilliant. He facilitated the day at a relaxed pace whilst still managing to ensure that all the activities were complete. We very much enjoyed his alter ego! All the animal keepers were without exception friendly and informative and were all so passionate about what they do. The catering staff provided an excellent and varied menu accommodating all the teams quirky requirements!

This activity has provided an excellent spring board for getting the team to work together more effectively in the future. We would thoroughly recommend the day to other teams." 

Lynne Hartley, British Red Cross (Beds Herts Essex Area)
