For the fourth year running children were invited to take part in a search for decorated animals – this time 30 lions! – which took up temporary residence in shop windows within Broadmead and The Galleries from Saturday 28th March until Saturday 11thApril. The lions were decorated by children from local primary schools and maps showing the location of the lions were available from The John Wesley Chapel (opposite Boots) and from Specsavers on Merchant Street. On Saturday 28th March, Thursday 2nd, Saturday 4th and 11th April, children who had completed the hunt could attend free craft workshops in The John Wesley Chapel where they also received free chocolate; on the 4th there was also a screening of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, which provided a theme for the trail.
“As manager of an independent retailer on the edge of the BID area, I really appreciate the work the BID team does to help promote all its businesses, especially events like the annual Easter trail that encourage shoppers to explore the whole area.”
