The Dinosaur Discovery Trail

What is the Dinosaur Discovery Trail?

Created to celebrate Walk to School Week (21-25 May 2018), the Dinosaur Discovery Trail encouraged families in the borough to get out and about exploring their local area on foot, while searching for dinosaurs hidden in different locations.

Winners and runners-up

Thank you to everyone who took part in this year’s Dinosaur Discovery Trail, we hope you enjoyed it. The prize draw is now complete and three runners-up and one overall winner were drawn at random. The runners-up are Michael from Hill House School, Maggie from Knightsbridge School and Elmer from Marlborough Primary School, who all receive a goody bag. The overall winner is Clara from Chepstow House School, who gets a scooter! All prize winners and their schools have been notified. Congratulations to all of this year’s winners!
