Noah’s Ark Town Centre Half Term Trail Free activity around Hertford Town Centre for all the family to enjoy

Children and families can participate in a Noah’s Ark Town Centre trail this October half term.

Hertford Town Council has once again joined forces with the Secret Society of Hertford Crafters, the group behind the hugely popular Hertford Town Centre Christmas tree, poppy installation at Hertford Castle and previous town centre trails to support the high street with a FREE themed trail.

The trail runs from Saturday 24th October until Saturday 7th November, and whilst it been designed with children in mind, the knitted creations are sure to appeal to people of all ages.

Knitted Noah’s Ark paired animals will be hiding in shop windows around the town centre, and include elephants, koalas, monkeys, lions, giraffes and many more (see photographs).

To take part in the trail, families should visit Hertford Town and Tourist Information Centre, in The Wash opposite Hertford Theatre, to pick up a trail map.

Children will need to match the shop with the animal hiding in the window, which has been created by members of the Secret Society of Hertford Crafters, in a minimum of 15 of the 20 businesses taking part around the town.

Once they have completed the trail, they will be able to collect a badge from the Town and Tourist Information Centre and submit the completed form into the red letter box (in the shop) for a chance to win a £30, £20 or £10 gift voucher to spend at a Hertford retailer.

The themed trail has been created to encourage local residents and visitors to explore and discover the broad range of independent and national retailers within the county town.

Chairman of Hertford Town Council’s Development and Leisure Committee, Cllr Jane Sartin, said: “The Secret Society of Hertford Crafters’ knitted Noah’s Ark animals will be a great addition to Hertford town centre shops as we head into winter.  Whilst the trail will provide a good half-term activity for children, I am sure adults will also enjoy spotting the knitted animals around the town centre.”
