After two weeks of “wild” entertainment, Shrewsbury’s very own wildlife reserve will be packed up this Friday 23rd February.
Wild Cop has been a roaring success, with organisers saying it has attracted many people to the area during the half term period.
Six life-sized fiberglass animals including a bear, a gorilla, a lion, a zebra, a hippo and a baby elephant, were placed onto the closed section of the Wyle Cop road during a part road closure, as part of the DarwIN Shrewsbury Festival this month.
A vacant shop front was also transformed into a rainforest, providing entertainment for children, with free activity booklets that were available to pick up from shops on Wild Cop.
The event, an initiative by Shrewsbury Business Improvement District, has prompted a fantastic response from the public, with #wildcop trending across all social media channels.
Free activity booklets are available to fill in while you are there, hand them into any participating shops for your chance to win £50 to spend on Wyle Cop.
