18 July-7th Sept: Sodbury Safari Search
From July 18th there will be over 30 animals in the High Street windows of Chipping Sodbury retailers and businesses. Your job as intrepid explorers is to find the names of all the animals and compare them with the trail map.
One of the names will be missing! That's the answer you need to send us to be in with a chance of winning one of the animals at the end of the Search on 7th September.
To fit in with Social Distancing rules, we're asking people not to touch windows, max group size of 6 and we aren't going to print trail maps.

After the roaring success of last year's Dinosaur Search, Chipping Sodbury Chamber bring you the 2020 Sodbury Safari Search.
From the 18th July there will be over 30 animals in the High Street windows of Chipping Sodbury shops and businesses.
Your job as intrepid explorers is to find the names of all of the animals and compare them with the trail map.
There are two versions on the trail map for you to download - one in full colour to use on your phone or tablet as you walk around town, and one with an ink-friendly white background - we suggest using this version to print at home and carry with you.
Please don't waste lots of ink printing out the full colour version!
Click on either of the the images below to download and print your choice of map.

When you have completed your trail, you'll find that one of the names will be missing - that's the answer you need to send us to be in with a chance of winning one of the animals at the end of the Search on 7th September.
Like last year, the animals are hand made by local toy maker The Purple Saurus based in Hatherell's Yard.
To fit in with Social Distancing rules, we're asking people not to touch windows and to keep to a maximum group size of 6 people.
We aren't going to provide ready-printed trail maps this year.
As well as being able to print your trail map by clicking on the images above, you'll also find it in the centre pages of the August edition of The Boundary Magazine.
Entries will only be via text message, we will not be collecting the maps back in this year.
Michelle, one of the Chamber chairs, says: "We really hope the children will enjoy doing the search this year and the town will benefit from the extra footfall".
The photos below, kindly supplied by RichMcD Photography, show the Search animals and Chamber Chair Andrew, plus local business owner Jo of Not Too Shabby.
The Best-dressed Safari Window, judged by Perro (the Mayors Dog) has been decided.
Perro couldn't choose a winner so we have joint first places.
Congratulations to Swagger - Unique Gifts & Jewellery and Waitrose, Chipping Sodbury, for joint first place.
The Coffee Bean won 2nd Place and Innovation Hair Studio 3rd Place.
Well done everyone - and thank you Perro!
As some of you may be aware Sodbury Chamber had started work on a new town map to help promote the businesses in town.
Despite the current crisis Justin our local graphic artist has been busy working away on detailed drawings of the High Street.
You can follow his progress via this link.
Justin says: "I can now proudly share the reason I’ve been quiet lately... I was recently commissioned by the Chipping Sodbury Chamber of Commerce to produce a brand new Visit Chipping Sodbury town map as part of a joint venture with 29 design.
The town map I’m drawing will be used to promote all the amazing local businesses in the town.
Originally the map was planned to be launched this summer, but obviously recent crisis may change this. We hope to have the map ready for when the crisis is over.
In the meantime I’m going to share my progress and drawings using this #drawingchippingsodbury over the coming weeks of all the amazing and interesting buildings in Chipping Sodbury."
We will issue more details about the map when we are ready to launch. Stay safe everyone.
