Drawing crowds to Hanham High Street

FAMILIES enjoyed a Beatrix Potter Trail in Hanham High Street over the summer holidays.

It was organised by Nicola Bartlett from Eclectic gift shop, pictured,  and sponsored by  Tollgate Hire and Jemima’s Beauty.

Nicola said: “The Beatrix Potter characters were handmade by my late mother-in-law, Patricia Smith. I hid them in shop windows. Families have been collecting trail maps and enjoying a circular route searching for Jeremy Fisher, Mrs Tiggywinkle and others. The trail has been very popular and I am already planning another for the October school holidays.

Resident Katie Gingell said:  “We loved it!  The girls enjoyed finding the characters, completing their sheets and receiving their certificates and prize. The trail is also a way of reminding us what great local shops we have at our doorstep”
