Four females, who currently reside in the Leicestershire zoo, will be packing their trunks and arriving two by two early next year. The move comes after months of behind the scenes work with experts from the European Endangered Species Programme (EEP) and Twycross Zoo’s team of specialists to secure the future of these magnificent animals. Project Elephant, which will open in Spring, is one of the UK’s largest indoor elephant facilities and has been built on previously vacant land at the zoo, opening up an additional three acres to visitors. It has been specially designed around the complex welfare needs of the mammoth species and will feature a raised indoor viewing platform for visitors. Externally, the public will enjoy unobstructed views of the elephants in their large paddock, which includes a sanded area complete with bathing pool and a landscaped grass field. Over recent months keepers and management from both zoos have been conducting onsite visits to the elephants and the new development in order to ensure a smooth transition. Darren Webster, Managing Director at Blackpool Zoo, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming a new herd of elephants from Twycross Zoo after working with their team and experts from the European Endangered Species Programme (EEP). “We will be releasing more details about our new residents very soon and our keepers have been getting to know everything they can about the each of the girls from their current carers. “It has been a very exciting year here at Blackpool Zoo as we have watched our multi-million pound Project Elephant development take shape.We are very proud of our achievement and the opportunity the facility gives us to improve elephant management and welfare standards. “Our elephant, Kate, who was the first resident to arrive at Blackpool Zoo over 45 years ago, has now moved into her new home and has settled in very well. “We are working closely with Twycross Zoo’s specialist team of keepers and management to welcome the girls in the New Year. “Following this, we will facilitate introductions to Kate within the new development before we open the new house in Spring, with a view to introducing a bull elephant in the future to complete the herd.” Project Elephant underpins the Blackpool Zoo’s ongoing commitment to the endangered Asian Elephant. It is a long-term supporter of the Biodiversity and Elephant Conservation Trust (BECT) in Sri Lanka. Formed in 1998 the non-profit organisation identifies and addresses the social issues of human and elephant conflict in order to facilitate the conservation of the species. The Asian elephant has been listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List since 1986. The population has declined by at least 50 percent over the last three generations, estimated to be 60--75 years, with threats including loss of habitat, habitat degradation, fragmentation and poaching. • FEATURE SCENE Page 56 CONTACTS Editorial and all other queries: emma@thepropertyscene .com Tel: 07970 711 843 Advertising: advertising@thepropertyscene .com Tel: 01253 392064 Website: www .thepropertyscene .com Design & Print Ltd ALFIE BOE TO RETURN HOME FOR 2018 CONCERT International singing star Tickets to Homecoming go on Alfie Boe is to return to his hometown for a special one- sale at 9am Friday November 24 off concert. from www.ticketmaster.co.uk Homecoming will be the biggest Speaking about the concert Alfie concert the Lancashire town of Fleetwood has ever hosted and said:“Being Fleetwood born and will take place at Fleetwood bred and a fully fledged member Town FC’s Highbury Stadium on of the Cod Army it’s an honour Saturday June 2. and a privilege to be performing back in my home town and at my team’s home ground.

Make up the pastry by sifting the flour and salt into a mixing bowl and rubbing the fats into it until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. 2. Then add just enough cold water to mix to a dough that leaves the bowl clean. Leave the pastry to rest in a polythene bag in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes, then roll half of it out as thinly as possible and cut it into two dozen 3 inch (7.5 cm) rounds, gathering up the scraps and re-rolling. Then do the same with the other half of the pastry, this time using the 2½ inch (6 cm) cutter. 3. Now grease the patty tins lightly and line them with the larger rounds. Fill these with mincemeat to the level of the edges of the pastry. Dampen the edges of the smaller rounds of pastry with water and press them lightly into position to form lids, sealing the edges. Brush each one with milk and make three snips in the tops with a pair of scissors. Bake near the top of the oven for 25-30 minutes until light golden brown. 4. Cool on a wire tray and sprinkle with icing sugar. When cool, store in an airtight container.
