talks about her happy memories of trips to Belle Vue and seeing elephants for
the first time
My memories of Belle Vue were it was the best place to go as
a kid, the place you looked forward too going apart from the seaside which
would be Blackpool or Southport it was Belle Vue and we went a lot because it
was a zoo right on our doorstep. And
then I just remember it being gone so I
never got the chance to take my kids to Belle Vue which is a shame.
I have just got happy memories, I remember being really
happy when we went to Belle Vue, I just remember loads of animals, I remember
seeing elephants for the first time. It
was great to have that in Manchester is great, the only chance you’re going to
see them. It’s not like now where you
have got the Internet where kids can see anything online and see videos of
stuff online whenever they want too. I
mean I would have loved to have a zoo in Manchester for my kids.
