ALCESTER was visited by exotic creatures as part of a fund raising morning at the Jubilee Centre.

Esmeralda the python, baby meerkets Deeba and Karni, several snakes, a chameleon and a bearded dragon were amongst the animals which were brought to the centre by Edzoocation.

The event was held to raise funds for the tarmacing of the Jubilee Centre car park.

Alcester’s Mayor Yvonne Hine took part in the fun by making friends with the animals.
