Donkeys’ tale told on new Highfield sign

Visitors to the Highfield Garden Reserve in Algies Bay can find out all they need to know about the park and its much-loved resident donkeys from a brand-new information panel at the entrance.

The illustrated sign was unveiled by Rodney Local Board chair Beth Houlbrooke (left) and Jenny van der Mespel, granddaughter of Alison Roberts, who gifted the reserve and its donkeys to the nation in 1985.

There are seven donkeys at Highfield at present – Truffle, Tansy, Toby, Tina, Tara, Turvey and Topsy – with another one due in the summer from an expectant Truffle.
