The summer is over and our lovely Honeysuckle Rose has gone off to join the rest of the Sculptures at the Mall Cribbs Causeway where Wallace, Gromit and Feathers McGraw will reunite in the last chance to marvel at the innovative and inventive trail designs before they are auctioned off to raise vital money for Bristol Children's Hospital. They will be there until the end of September.
Our very own mini Gromit Hunt has also finished and it was very well received by visitors to the town. Thank you to everyone who took part. We have collected in all the entry forms and the winner of the prize draw was Joby Amesbury, aged 10, from Thornbury.
He wins the mini Gromit he chose as his favourite which was “007 Diamonds are Forever” designed by Penny Skinner from Bonds of Thornbury. Joby also wins £25.00 of Thornbury Vouchers to spend in our local participating shops.
The rest of the mini Gromits are being sold and all the money raised will be donated to the Grand Appeal charity which supports Bristol Children's Hospital. Rowena, Chair of Thornbury Chamber, commented that it was nice to see so many people around the Town throughout the summer obviously enjoying both the main Gromit Trail but also taking part in our very own Gromit Hunt. We hope this will encourage people to visit Thornbury again.
You can still buy a memento of Honeysuckle Rose, there are Note Books £2.95, Fridge Magnets and Badges £2.00 each, they are available at News 4 U in St Mary Centre until the end of September. All profits go to the Grand Appeal.
Our own mini Gromits were all wonderfully decorated by local people and it is a shame to pick any winners but the top 4 were voted by the public as:
1st Mr Gromit – Gems of Thornbury
2nd Wings – Papilio at Heritage
3rd 007 Diamonds are Forever – Bonds of Thornbury
4th Daisy – The Carnival Committee (Displayed in Riddifords)
