The sun decided to come out today but there was a cold wind in the air but it didn't stop us from catching a bus into town and going on the Nutcracker Trail which has been organised for the festive period. They are huge and scattered all around the city centre. In total there are twenty to find
Each Nutcracker has been named and they all have different moustaches. There is a Nutcracker trail booklet which has a map showing you the rough location of each of them.
When you have found the Nutcrackers you have to write their names down in the booklet and post in one of the three special Christmas post boxes and you have a chance of winning an ipad mini.
Most of the Nutcrackers are behind shop windows so taking a good photo of them all was not always possible but it was great fun trying to find them.
We found them all, now all we have got to do is put their names in the booklet once we have figured out which moustache goes with which name. It was nice to see that there were quite a few families going round and taking part – so much better than being stuck indoors and playing on games machines.
