Park set to open in spring
A campaign to reopen Westbury Wildlife Park has ignited the interest of the local community. An initial fundraising target of £5,000 has been met, the management committee are continuing to apply for funding and nearly 250 volunteers have already signed up to help.
Students from Bristol Zoo (pictured) came to the site in Westbury village in December and got stuck into the work, which they will continue with this year.
If all goes to plan the wildlife park will be open to the public by the early summer season.
