And the wind blew!

A few stormy days last week but the park held up well with only a few branches down.  We certainly did better that a lot of places, the news was full of images of big trees down.

JDParties were here putting up their Grande Marquee for the Christmas Party Extravaganzas and arriving at work on Friday morning it all looked a bit of a disaster.  The wind had lifted most of the structure and there was twisted metal all over the site and it looked like that could be the end of Christmas for them.

Christmas is saved!


The Christmas Parties run throughout December and are a fantastic night out.  Check out their website at for more information.

About safariuk

I am the Visitor Service Manager for UK tourist attraction Knowsley Safari Park. I have been in the post only for a few years and consider myself very fortunate to work in such a fantastic place. Not many people outside of Africa can take their lunch break while looking at elephants! This isn't the official blog for Knowsley Safari Park but my own views and opinions on things that may be happening at the park, in the leisure industry or anywhere else.
