The campaign to save Maryon Wilson animal park is moving up a notch, with a “wall of buggies” protest planned for Wednesday lunchtime. The idea’s simple – to form a wall of buggies for an hour from 12 noon around the enclosure. “We are protesting against the planned cuts, which would mean losing the animal centre forever,” organisers say.
Sounds like too much effort? Well, The Big Red Bus Club children’s playgroup is offering a free cup of tea and biscuit to anyone who takes part, so you can recuperate afterwards. Look out for volunteers giving out vouchers.
