Underwater Window cleaners!

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

Have you ever heard of window cleaners wearing flippers?

Today the divers have been to the aquarium specially to clean the glass in the under-water tunnel. I thought my window cleaner had it tough going up a long ladder but the glass in the lake tank is much more difficult and involves a specialist diving company. They arrived in full diving suits, in order to stay underwater long enough to clean all the glass.

I hope our giant wels catfish are pleased with their work as I wouldn't fancy them a disgruntled customer!

Oscar skims for glory!

Friday, July 3rd, 2009

Oscar the otter has come face to face with a number of other mascots during the mascot stone skimming contest held this afternoon.

The mascots talk tactics. 'I am not sure that Sammy the squirrel has got the right idea and it appears he plans to take out the competition with one swift hit with the oar'

Oscar takes his turn with Ben Lamb from South Cumbria Rivers Trust watching on as the adjudicator.

The two finalists Oscar and Deepdale Duck get ready for their interview on Border television.
