A travelling zoo visits Colne View residents

June 11th 2012

Residents came face to face with lizards, a tarantula, an owl and even a scorpian when a travelling zoo visited Colne View.

The zoo also brought some more cuddly members of the animal kingdom including puppies and rabbits. Staff and residents were able to handle and pet the various animals, reptiles and other creatures and the visit was extremely popular.
