Terry Barnes has dressed as a zebra, Snow White and even a jester in a bid to raise the mood around the town.

The 54-year-old initially thought of the idea of dressing up after he found the zebra in his wardrobe and asked his boss if he could wear it.

During his rounds, he has been spotted by locals who have praised him for dressing up with some posting on Facebook when they have seen him.

Terry said when he dressed as a zebra, the dogs looked confused but the kids cheered when they saw him.
