Hot on the heels of Horsham District Council’s popular ‘Townies and Parkies‘ children’s trails, a new Horsham Town Centre Sticker Trail is set to launch this Friday (20 July) just in time for the school summer holidays.
The initial children’s trails which launched during the May Half Term featured a series of animal characters which decorate the town’s new illustrative panelling in the walk way linking the town centre with Horsham Park at Albion Way and the new Sticker Trail will build on these characters.
This free sticker trail activity has once again been organised by Horsham District Council with the cooperation of local businesses to support trade in the town centre. Twelve family friendly town centre locations are offering children the opportunity to collect one of 12 animal character stickers that go to fill up a sticker card which can be collected from Waterstones Bookshop in the Carfax.
Once the cards have been filled with all twelve stickers, a tear off section can be handed in at Mr Simms sweet shop for an opportunity to win one of a number of prizes donated by the participating locations. The town centre trail runs from Friday 20 July to Sunday 2 September or when cards and stickers run out, if sooner. Prize winners will be notified in the week commencing 3 September.
Commenting on the continuation of the children’s themed competition, Cabinet Member for Community and Culture Cllr Jonathan Chowen said:
“I am delighted that our initial children’s trail was so successful and proved so engaging for our younger residents and visitors.
“As we now continue to reach out to our youngsters with this additional competition, I would encourage as many of you as possible to come and experience our unique town centre with your families over the summer.”
Also launching on the 20 July is an exciting Townies and Parkies story writing competition for children aged 5 to 13 years. More details of this will be given next week but are available online now on the Horsham Time Well Spent events website via www.towniesandparkies.info .
The previously released Townies and Parkies trail around Horsham Park will continue with updated trail forms available to download online.
The summer Townies and Parkies Sticker Trail features the following outlets: Waterstones Bookshop, Cocoa Loco, Gobsmack Comics, Toy Barnhaus, The Entertainer, Mr. Simms, Chococo, Battlequest Games, Ceramic Shack, My Fair Kind Child, Steamer Trading and Horsham Library.
