A Summer Visitor


GorillaFor the past few years the Town Park has been the summer home for a number of exotic animals on loan from our very good friends at the British Ironworks Centre near Oswestry. This year's visitor is now with us and the picture below shows him with the FOTTP Chairman Chris Pettman (he's he one on the right).

If you've never been to the Ironworks centre do give it a try - it's a fascinating place and a great free day out for the kids.
