Hello all, with 2017 quickly coming to an end I thought to start up something I did last year. A recap where we all get together and talk about Chester this year. This year has been another fabulous and groundbreaking year for Chester, and with still a while until January, it could become greater still. As last year my thread missed 3 births (the giraffe and Spotted dear born on Boxing Day and indahli the baby elephant) I won't start with the question of births in case anymore happen in the next 20 days or so. Anyway onto the first question: Best building development of the year. This has to be a building be it exhibit, play ground or area of the zoo that opened to the public this year. It can be a redevelopment of an old area or a new thing all together. Let's keep the debate kind and light hearted as always and let's have some fun as we see an end to 2017.
