The sun shone once again on the Friends BBQ, and a great time was had by all - from face painting and toy-pig racing at the children's end to burgers, dancing, and Pimms at the other.
We would like to give particular thanks to the following for helping make the evening so special: The Heap family, who generously allowed us to use the Zoo after hours, and the Zoo Staff, including Fiona, Anita and Shannon the Parrot.; Smart Hospitality our fantastic caterer; the helpers from our sponsors Douglas & Gordon, Battersea (led by James Clifton and Emma Seckel); Los Soneros the Mexican band (sponsored by Hodders Law); Miss 'Dee-Faced', the face painter; Oliver Brown from Teddy Tennis; and last but not least, Sam Bassett the gorilla from Go Ape. We also thank all those many people and local businesses who donated beer and wonderful silent auction, raffle and tombola prizes.
Looking forward to seeing you all again, next year!
