Bee a Winner on the South Gloucestershire High Street Trail
A swarm of bright and beautiful outsized bees is buzzing about South Gloucestershire’s high streets as part of a major new campaign led by the Council to support local independent traders.
To take part in the South Gloucestershire Bee Trail Challenge, all you must do is ‘collect’ the 16 individual fibreglass bees by taking a selfie with them and then entering the photos for a chance to win a weekly prize draw of £150 vouchers for each high street.
The Challenge runs until Saturday 18 September with two bees in each of the eight local high streets: Chipping Sodbury, Downend, Filton, Hanham, Kingswood, Staple Hill, Thornbury, and Yate – Station Road. Currently there are almost 80 traders taking part, ranging from arts and crafts and gift shops to pubs and cafes, with more joining the scheme every day.
All the bees have been decorated by local artists and each one is very different – from Astronobee, inspired by space and the world of the unknown, to Pablo Bee Cazzo, with his rainbow wings and honeycomb centre.
When the Bee Trail Challenge is complete, the bees will be auctioned for charity at an event hosted by the Council Chair later in the year.
