This year in conjunction with Gromit Unleashed 2 we have placed 22 Cuddly Gromits in the windows of Chipping Sodbury Retailers. Each Gromit is carrying out a special activity.
All you have to do is collect your Search Map from the Tourist Information centre or various shops about town, follow the map and cross off each activity.
You will then be left with one activity that Gromit is "NOT" doing, this is your answer to fill in on the entry form and return to the Tourist Information Centre by the 2nd of September.
We will then pick 22 lucky winners who will win one of the cuddly Gromits to keep forever.
The Summer Search is free to enter but we are asking for donations towards "The Grand Appeal", the Bristol Children's Hospital Charity.
Michelle Baden-Daintree - one of the Chairs of the Chipping Sodbury Chamber of Commerce says: "The Summer search has always been a favourite activity of ours to run throughout the Summer.
This year we are thrilled to be a sponsor of the Gromit Unleashed 2 public arts trail, and have put together a fantastic Gromit themed search around the windows of the High Street for children to really have fun."
Monday 2nd July - Sunday 2nd September 2018
Chipping Sodbury Chamber of Commerce are delighted to have secured a Gromit sculpture in Gromit Unleashed 2 to encourage locals and visitors to Chipping Sodbury over the summer.
When the word got out that the Chamber were hoping to be able to raise enough money to sponsor a Gromit for the summer, 27 local independent businesses, members of Chipping Sodbury Chamber of Commerce, 4 larger businesses, 5 charitable organisations, Sodbury Town Council and a 'go fund me page' for locals who had got wind of the project wanted to get involved.
They all contributed money to secure the Gromit to bring attention to Chipping Sodbury and support such a wonderful charity that nearly everyone has had experience of needing the help of, whether it was for themselves, their children or their grandchildren.
Gromit is in town until September 2nd. After September he will be auctioned along with the other sculptures to raise money for the Bristol Children’s Hospital charity, The Grand Appeal.
Free trail maps are available from the Gromit Unleashed shop at The Mall at Cribbs Causeway, selected locations across the city, in The Bristol Post, and in a number of locations throughout Chipping Sodbury.
Gromit Unleashed 2 sculptures are spread across Bristol and the surrounding areas.

A new team has stepped up to run the Chipping Sodbury Chamber of Commerce for 2018.
The new management team consisting of three Executive members, local business man Andrew Webb of Webb Associates, renowned local Photographer Rich McD and private client lawyer Michelle Baden-Daintree from Simpson Solicitors have been elected by fellow members to run the chamber in the year that will see the first ever Gromit stationed in the town.
Andrew, Rich and Michelle share a vision to bring the local community of business owners together to capitalise on the expected trade and footfall for the market town during the coming year. They will rely on support from current active chamber members including Jo Cox who remains heavily involved with the Gromit, having recently stepped down formally as chair.
Michelle says “I am really excited to be working closely with Andrew and Rich over the next twelve months we have lots of plans to raise the profile of the town and are delighted to be spearheading the campaign whereby local businesses, organisations and individuals from the community have all come together to contribute towards securing the town’s first Gromit”.
The Chamber of Commerce can be an excellent platform on which to base your efforts to reach potential new clients and find new business leads. In addition to new leads you can hope to benefit from perks and benefits. If you are interested in joining the chamber then please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
