We Love Bears
Chesford Grange has also adopted Ginny the Moon Bear.
Ginny lives at Animals Asia's bear sanctuary in SW China.
She was rescued from a cruel bear farm where she was painfully

Today she has recovered and explores her bamboo forest, swims in
her pool and plays on climbing frames - it's a Bear's life!
