The Queen has been busy getting ready for her Platinum Jubilee, but she can’t find her favourite crown. Can you help her?
Follow the Platinum Jubilee High Street Trail around the district’s five market towns and find the crowns hidden in local high street shops. As a reward for their services to Her Majesty the Queen, shoppers could be in the running to win a big prize.
The Platinum Jubilee High Street Trail launches on 16 May and will see royal crowns hidden in high street shops in Attleborough, Dereham, Swaffham, Thetford and Watton.
For a chance to win, visit businesses displaying a Platinum Jubilee High Street Trail poster and find the name of the king or queen attached to the crown hidden there. There are plenty of crowns stashed around the district – you only need to find ten to be entered into the prize draw! You’ll need a Jubilee Trail Card to write down the monarch’s names and the business they were hiding in. Trail cards can be downloaded from the council’s website or picked up at businesses that are taking part.
To show how grateful we are for your help in tracking down the missing crowns, five people will win a royal family day out in Breckland. The winners will be chosen at random from all the completed Jubilee Trail Cards sent in before 19 June.
Completed Trail Cards can be posted to: Jubilee Trail, Elizabeth House, Walpole Loke, Dereham, NR19 1EE, or a photo of the completed sheet can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The winners will be chosen and contacted in July 2022.
Cllr Paul Claussen, Executive Member for Economic Development and Growth at Breckland Council, said: “Why not make your celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee even more special by winning a royal day out at one of Breckland’s many attractions? You could do exactly that by taking part in our Platinum Jubilee High Street Trail! So many people told us how much they enjoyed our Reindeer Trail over Christmas, that we decided to bring it back for this once-in-a-lifetime celebration. They also told us how much they enjoyed this chance to explore our wonderful high streets and all they have to offer – so why not take your chance while you’re hunting for crowns?”
