For the fifth year running young visitors to Broadmead have been invited to take part in a hunt for decorated animals, this time zebras, in celebration individuality and uniqueness, which took up residence in shop windows from Thursday 24th March; they will be there until Sunday 10th April. The 38 zebras were decorated by children from local primary schools and maps showing their locations are available from The New Room/John Wesley Chapel (opposite Boots) and from Specsavers on Merchant Street. On Saturday 26th March the Ark Bus team were in Broadmead with some fun free craft activities, joining forces with The New Room/John Wesley Chapel to create a wall of awesomeness; they will be back on Saturday 2nd April. All children completing the zebra trail and making a note of each zebra’s name (they are all named after inspirational people) can collect a chocolate reward from The New Room/John Wesley Chapel.
“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.”
