This year’s GoGoHares campaign has lived up to Norfolk’s expectations and more, with the scorching summer weather meaning more people than ever have been out in the sunshine completing the trail.

Thousands of people have so far been seen adventuring around the city of Norwich, map or app in hand, with the hopes of ticking each and every one off their list.

The trail began in Norwich with 50 “ears up” hares for the public to find, meanwhile wider in the county there are 18 moongazer hares.

Further on in the trail, a staggering 160 leveret sculptures were added to the streets of Norwich and the wider area.

All three trails have been organised by children charity Break and Wild in Art to celebrate Break’s 50th anniversary year.

A spokesman for Break said: “Families with trail maps or the downloaded app continue to fill the streets near every hare sculpture around Norfolk. The sight of people enjoying family time, or being with friends is something which makes these sculpture trails particularly special.

“The app allows people to unlock a hare with a special code from the plaque by the sculpture.

“To date there have been 113,880 unlocks and around 180,000 trail maps circulating around the county too.

“Social media continues to buzz with pictures of people enjoying themselves and a sharing facility on the app, nurtures a community feel of the trail seekers demonstrating how popular this activity is.”
