Merton Place Resident Miss Hilary Ojuri enjoys making friends with one of the zoo visitors, along with Mrs Eleri Williams, right, Deputy Manager of the Care Home.
There were some additional creature comforts at the Merton Place Care Home in Colwyn Bay when residents welcomed guests from the Welsh Mountain Zoo. A snake, tarantula spider and tortoise were among the visitors, much to the delight of the residents who also welcomed staff from the Zoo.
“It just goes to show you’re never too old to enjoy new experiences or learn new talents – I think we’ve now got several expert snake charmers here!” said Sue Williams, Activities Coordinator at the home, which is managed by Clwyd Alyn Housing Association.
“The staff from the zoo were absolutely brilliant and we’d like to say a big thank you to them for the visit.”
