Hertford Town Council has once again joined forces with the Secret Society of Hertford Crafters to support the high street with this free themed trail for children to enjoy with their families which runs from Saturday 29th May until Saturday 12th June.
Crafted Farm Characters will be hiding in shop windows around the town centre and includes ducks, tractors, highland cow and even a farm with a farmer (see photographs).
Children will need to match the shop with the farm character or scene hiding in the window (which have been created by members of the Secret Society of Hertford Crafters) in a minimum of 9 of the 13 businesses taking part around the town.
Once they have completed the trail, participants will need to submit their completed form through the letter box at the Town and Tourist Information Centre, The Wash for a chance to win a £30, £20 or £10 gift voucher to spend at a Hertford retailer.
The characters will be displayed in the shop windows and visitors will need to adhere to guidelines whilst completing the trail.
Both trails are free for families and visitors of all ages to explore. The Castle Grounds are open from 6.30am to 9pm for the Enchanted Fairy Trail.
To take part in the trails, families should visit Hertford Town and Tourist Information Centre, in The Wash opposite Hertford Theatre, to pick up trail maps from the leaflet holder. Trail maps can be downloaded from the Hertford Town Council website. You can also pick up copies from the leaflet dispensers around the Castle grounds.

Chairman of the Town Council’s Development and Leisure Committee, Cllr Jane Sartin, said: “The Enchanted Fairy Trail will bring a touch of magic to Hertford Castle this half-term. Children and families can take a walk around the beautiful Castle grounds, and discover the fairies and pixies hiding there. In Hertford town centre, tracking down the Secret Society of Hertford Crafters’ knitted farm characters and scenes will provide another fun activity. Thank you to the local businesses, organisations and the Secret Society of Hertford Crafters for making these trails possible.”
