Local Community Association ACORN will be staging a Petting Zoo in our very own Newton Aycliffe town centre, to support local shops and businesses on Saturday 13th July from 10.00am til 2.00pm.
ACORN have been staging events for the benefit of local residents for over thirteen years, but, sadly, this will probably be our final one due to our volunteers getting older, funding becoming scarcer and stricter legislation.
This being the case, ACORN have pulled out all the stops to make this event the best ever. On the day we expect to feature Aycliffe Radio, Scranimals, Animal Story, Animals About Town, Crazy Creatures, Prickly Haven Rescue, GRACE Greyhound Rescue, Blackberry Donkeys, a balloon modeller, W.I. cake stall, face painter and much much more.
This is always a popular event, and we look forward to welcoming everyone, young and old to come along making this our best event ever.
I would like to thank our Town Centre Management for allowing us to stage this event in the town and Paul Howarth of Newton News for supporting us over the years.
