Safe Summer Family Fun

The Hogs will be out and about from 10th August until mid October 2021 and will be accompanied by this website and a fun, free to download app. After the event, the Hogs will then be auctioned in aid of a local charity.

Summer fun in 2020 was blighted by Covid19, and we are determined that 2021 should be different.

This project is outdoor, self-guiding through the free app, so easy to social distance and fun for all the family.

It doesn’t rely on venues being open and people can enjoy it 24/7 without having to touch anything  apart from their phone to access the app guide.

So even if we are there are restrictions in place the trail can still go ahead, in fact it can be part of everyone’s staycation plans!

Own a Hog

If one of the Hogs has taken your fancy, then why not come and bid on it at the charity auction in October.

Not only could you have your own unique piggy work of art, but you will be supporting a great cause too.
