Places to stay, things to do, good food and drink
Once again the boars are on the loose. This time they have escaped from their homes in local schools, playgroups and the Taurus Crafts craft units. So look out for Baldrick the Sniffer, Gruntana, Pinkie, Chops, Baez, Gloucester Old Square, Burt the Severn Boar, Sir Gruntalot, Rudolph, Boar Family Scratchings, Bordacea, Colin, Cecil, Boris, Clanger, Lavender and Hubert hiding in the garden and buildings at Taurus Crafts.
Find them all and the intrepid hunter will win the inaugural Boar Trail Trophy made by Martin Stephens of the Taurus Crafts Pottery. And then there is Mrs Snuffle Truffle, she is not exactly hiding! The Boar trail is open from April 11th to May 2nd.
