Helen Morris is a founder member of the Southam Heritage Collection and will be known by many local people as an active member of the town’s musical life. She also ran the Collection’s Oral History programme, collecting and preserving the reminiscences of over 40 of the town’s older residents.

Helen remembers the Southam Zoo from her very first days living in Southam and she has written this small book using the letters of the alphabet and line drawings (which can be coloured) to make it particularly attractive to children.
