Visit the animals at Dudley Zoo during the Easter Holiday. There are hundreds of animals to see, including tigers, monkeys and giraffes. Watch the penguins at feeding time, the sea lions in their enclosure and meet the animals on the farm.
This trip is part-funded by the Lozells Neighbourhood Forum, funded by the West Midlands Police Property Act Fund. Tickets are therefore available at the subsidised price of £5 per adult/child (normally £11.80 for adults and £9.50 for children), and under 3’s go free.
To book your ticket(s), please bring your payment to:
Tuesday 27th March 9.00 -10.00am at Lozells Recreation Group, Graham Street
Friday 30th March 9.15am to 10.15am – Community Room at St Francis School
Please note that spaces are limited, so all tickets will be issued on a first come first served basis. Once booked, tickets will be non-refundable.
If you have any questions, please come along to the registration/payment morning at the time and date outlined above.
A group of organisers will be taking the number 74 bus to the zoo on the morning of the trip. The bus will leave from the Hockley Hill bus stopand will drop off passengers directly outside the zoo entrance. If you would like to join the group on this journey, please notify one of the organisers when handing in your payment so that we can provide you with further information.
All of those taking the bus to the zoo will be responsible for their own travel fare.
Alternatively, you can arrange your own transport/travel to the zoo. Again, if you wish to do so, you must notify one of the organisers so that we can provide you with details of how you can collect your ticket(s).
Parents & staff of Anglesey & St Francis primary schools together with local businesses, organised a fantastic Children in Need fundraising event on Friday 18th November 2011.
Starting with a Basketball match between the parents & staff of both schools – Anglesey won 12-8! Everyone then went indoors at the LRG for food, stalls, a raffle and an auction. The whole event raised approximately £1,800!!!
What a nice way to thank Pudsey for all of those known and unknown projects they have funded in our area and abroad!
Thank you to everyone who helped put the event together and took part.
Its goodbye from me Gillian as I am about to start a new role over in Dudley working for the InterFaith Network there. I have been looking after the site for the Lozells Neighbourhood Forum since April. Technically its been a huge learning curve for me but I have enjoyed the process. Now though I am handing over to Alla who has much more skill and lots of ideas for giving the site a real buzz. Please support him by continuing to comment on the articles. Already we have added some fresh authors from the Forum committee. So as well as continuing to get details of local events and opportunities you should soon be seeing a host of new ideas and opinions. I will be logging on myself often to keep up with developments. A big thank you to Hannah at Chamberlain Forum for her support and training and to Jo at Midland Heart also.
