John Payne, John Sparks, Bob Gane, Ray Perriam and Geoff Wythe purchased an old Whitbread dray at the Peterborough show auction in March 2009 and are restoring and painting it so it can be used to give rides again.

This dray was originally a dray used for delivering beer around the City of London and made into a rides dray at the Whitbread hop farm.
It was bought from Whitbread by Banham zoo who used it for a number of years to give rides around the zoo.
