Sandra Williams asked: “That’s great. Wonder if they will get the wallabies back?”

In fact, the wallabies were obviously a favourite as a number of people asked a similar question.

Brenda King was also pleased by the news: “So glad, was thinking how rundown it looks from the outside every time we drive by.”

In years gone by Leonardslee hosted various events and Sally Lerwill made a good point: “Fab news, bring back the craft fairs too, please.”
