Jen commented: “As a team, when we attended the Go North Wales Tourism Award, we were so thrilled to be nominated for the Go Attraction of the Year award … little did we know that we would walk away with the Go North Wales Services to Tourism!
“To say we were speechless was an understatement! This amazing award is an incredibly important accolade for us and is a testament to our fantastic staff, volunteers, visitors and supporters who have made the Zoo what it is today, 60 years on. Thank you!”
Indeed, the Zoo celebrates its 60th birthday this year – a landmark year that allows all involved, past and present, to reflect on how far the charity has come and its many achievements.
Jen added: “We are mid-way through an exciting 10 year plan and accolades such as this help us build the momentum to realise our ambitions and to continue developing and evolving, whilst retaining our place as a leading attraction within our region.”
