Monkey World to celebrate its 25th anniversary

ONE of Dorset’s most famous attractions will soon celebrate its 25th anniversary. It is almost 25 years since the first nine chimpanzees arrived at Monkey World near Wareham.

On July 14, staff and friends of the ape rescue centre are planning a ‘Party in the Park’. A spokesman for the attraction said: “A traditional circus big top will be the setting for this special event, there will be live music from local bands and an incredible display from UK African Acrobats.”

To celebrate the special event the centre’s Animal Director Jeremy Keeling will be re-tracing the journey undertaken by the first nine chimpanzees to arrive to the park in 1987.

His motorbike adventure will cover approximately 900 miles, from Barcelona in Spain back to Monkey World. To sponsor Jeremy visit justgiving.com/jeremy- onemanandhisbike. For tickets or more information on the ‘Party in the Park’ call 01929 401018 or email fundraising@jimcroninmemorialfund.org
