Just a short note to thank all the people who had created the Olympics. We spent a fabulous day on Tuesday exploring your village and eating delicious cakes and burning them off on safari. My two daughters and I enjoyed the whole day and were most impressed by the Boxing Kangaroo and synchronised dolphins. We will make sure we attend next year’s event. Once again thanks to all involved. Catherine, Heather & Lily Burscough

Next years Safari will again be Spring Bank Holiday Week 23rd May to 31st May 2009
