Children meet ark animals

ANIMALS of all shapes and sizes were taken to meet children in Clevedon.

Youngsters at Rydal Day Nursery in Albert Road were visited by Chris Wilkinson, head keeper at Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm, and some animals from the Wraxall attraction.

These included Turnip the tortoise, Rupert the snake, Snuffy an African spotted owl and two lion head rabbits called Flash and Chocolate Ears.

The children were delighted to see the animals and had the chance to stroke them all.

Nursery manager Emma Coxall said: “This was a magical opportunity for the children. It really brought the their learning to life.”
