Olympic and Seaside Town Centre Summer Holidays Trails
Children and families can follow the Olympic and Seaside Characters Town Centre Trails during this upcoming summer school holidays.
Hertford Town Council has once again joined forces with the Secret Society of Hertford Crafters (the group behind the hugely popular 2019 Hertford Town Centre Christmas tree, the poppy installation at Hertford Castle, the post box toppers and previous town centre trails) to support the high street with FREE themed trails this summer.
Both trails are aimed at children to enjoy with their families. The first runs from Saturday 31st July until Saturday 14th August and the second runs from 21st August to 4th September.
Crafted Characters will be hiding in shop windows around the town centre, and include the Olympic stadium, Wheelchair Tennis, Weightlifter, Seagulls, Octopus Family, Blackpool Tower and many more.
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 from the leaflet holder.
Children will need to match the shop with the character or scene hiding in the window, 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 can drop off the completed form at the Town and Tourist Information Centre for a chance to win a £30, £20 or £10 gift voucher to spend at a Hertford retailer.
These themed trails have been created to encourage people to explore Hertford and discover the broad range of independent and national retailers and traders within the county town.
Chairman of Hertford Town Council’s Development and Leisure Committee, Cllr Jane Sartin, said: “Hertford Town Council’s town centre trails are always popular, and tracking down the Secret Society of Hertford Crafters’ Olympic and seaside characters will provide a great family activity in the town centre over the next few weeks. I’m sure people of all ages will also enjoy spotting the characters as they shop in the town.”
