Keen GoGo Hare hunters have had their noses buried into their maps this week to follow the special trail around Norfolk.

But more fans are expected to bounce in to action over the weekend to see the hand-painted sculptures in real life.

As weather conditions promise mid-to-high 20s on Saturday and Sunday, Norfolk locals and visitors are set to put on their runners and slip on their sun hat in an activity dedicated to discovering our beautiful county.

More than 50 Hares are located around Norwich and an extra 18 are hidden across Norfolk.

From July 2, there will be 164 leaping leverets bouncing about Norwich until September.

MP Chloe Smith yesterday morning visited five GoGoHare sculptures; Harero, Mr Cel-HARE-Brate, Hare comes the sun, Art Hare and Harey’ Spider.

The North Norwich MP was armed with a map, drawn by Norwich illustrator Charli Vince.

Mrs Smith sported a GoGoHares badge and purchased the EDP and Evening News GoGoHares sticker book.

The 36-year-old hopes to complete the book with her two-year-old son over the summer holiday.

If you are keen to download the map on to your device, you can download the GoGoHares app for £1.99.

Each time someone downloads the GoGoHare app, £1 is donated to the charity Break.

The EDP and Norwich Evening News sticker book is souvenir for every sculpture made for the GoGoHares trails organised by Break and Wild in Art.

We teamed up with the East of England Co-op to create the 60-page book which is a tribute to all the artists, hare sponsors and supporters who have helped create the GoGoHares family.

The album can be bought for £5 at www.edp24.co.uk/hares, by calling 01603 772138, and at selected outlets across the county.

It costs £5 and we will be publishing vouchers for readers to redeem free stickers.

Earlier this week, a colourful addition to the GoGoHares trail was named as a prize for one person who cracks the county trail.

The county-wide competition challenges GoGo fans to find all 18 of the moongazer hares on the trail and work out the secret message on the trail map.
