Newquay Zoo Wedding 2018

Congratulations to long serving Newquay Zoo Keeper Mark Tomaszewski  (‘Cheski’) on his marriage to Claire Organ.

Cheski joined us as a Keeper in our Council Zoo days c. 1982/3.

Claire is a former Newquay Zoo staff member and volunteer, early member of   Penguin Club c. 1990s and one of the first cohort of Cornwall College Newquay students when it opened in 2000.

I dug out a couple of younger pictures of Cheski and Claire from our Zoo Archive:

Our very best wishes from all the Newquay Zoo staff past and present on your wedding and your future happiness!
