A NORTH Somerset veterinary group made a seven-year-old boy’s dreams come true when he won a competition to become a zoo keeper at Bristol Zoo.

Henry Rees was able to hold lots of animals, feed the penguins and meerkats and enjoy a behind the scenes tour. The contest was arranged by Watkins and Tasker Veterinary Group.
