Having seen a post recently from the Book Nook, an independent shop on Ware High St, we thought it might be fun and good for the shops around town to set up a picture trail for the month of August.
It’s a bit like a treasure hunt and just for fun. We would ask children from our school (maybe others too?) to draw pictures of animals, fairies and other creatures that could be displayed in shop windows with their name/age on. The shops would then display the pictures somewhere in their windows and encourage families out to try and find them all. It’s something for the kids to do and then get out onto the High Street with family and friends over the summer. Many shops and businesses in our town have supported us in the past and we thought it would be good to give a little something back for the community.
You can collect a template from Keith Ian Estate Agents, The Book Nook & Taylor Phelps – once your children have drawn their picture they can return to the same shop and we can collect and distribute around town.
We are aiming to have pictures displayed in shops from the 1st August for the whole month.
Happy summer holidays everybody
