LIFE-SIZE giraffe Twiga has taken a tumble at its ‘safari park’ home in Hunston.

Wire animals made by sculptor Julian Broad adorn the garden at the family home in Church Lane.

Will the fallen giraffe be back on its feet by next Saturday for the garden open day?

Son Ben Broad said: “A fair amount of time has passed and, as one would expect, the animals have aged accordingly.

“A couple of weeks ago, our life-size giraffe Twiga took a tumble and she is currently lying on her side next to the yew hedge on the front lawn.”

It has proved a bit of a problem for the Broad family, as they will be opening the garden at The Manor House on Saturday, June 7, to raise money for St Wilfrid’s Hospice in Chichester.

Ben said: “The question is whether or not Twiga will have pulled herself together by the then and be back standing proud.”
