People of all ages can have some Easter fun with a trail around Bedford town centre with prizes up for grabs.

Bedford’s Business Improvement District team (BedfordBID) and the Bluecaps are staging a free to enter Easter Egg hunt around the town centre from Monday, April 7 until Wednesday, April 23.

Fifteen shops and businesses will be giving out stickers to families who take part in the fun town trail and information is now available on how to take part.

All entries will be entered into a draw to win a share of £100 of Love Bedford vouchers which can be redeemed at 250 local outlets.

Forms for the Easter Egg Hunt can be collected from any of the 15 local independent shops and businesses listed below.

Christina Rowe, director of BedfordBID said: “The town centre trails are consistently popular as they give families a reason to come into town and visit outlets they haven’t seen before.

“They encourage people to visit Bedford and step inside the doors of independent businesses.”
