Weymouth - Write verse - and make it snappy

22nd May 2009 at 01:00

Secondary schools in Dorset are being invited to write a song to win a trip for their class to the VIP opening of a crocodile sanctuary.

Weymouth Sea Life Park is spending Pounds 1 million on Crocodile Creek, a new attraction that includes a water ride through a swamp full of crocodiles. Spectators will be protected by reinforced glass.

The swamp is a refuge for abandoned crocodiles. As well as being a visitor attraction, the park hopes to raise awareness of crocodile conservation.

The competition is open to 11 to 13-year-olds who must produce an original second verse for the lyric: Never smile at a crocodileNo, you can't get friendly with a crocodileDon't be taken in by his welcome grinHe's imagining how well you'd fit within his skin.

Entries by May 31 to: Crocodile Competition, Weymouth Sea Life Park, Lodmoor Country Park, Weymouth DT4 7SX, or email slcweymouth@merlinentertainments.biz. HW.
