Two exciting new schemes launch at the Kiosk on Friday, as part of our super summer holiday entertainment: a litter picking event and a loyalty card for our younger visitors. Friday morning is a very rare opportunity to meet one of the bin elves that tidy the park – and even help one out for the morning! Flynn the bin elf will be at the Kiosk from 10am to meet young (and any older) litter pickers, and we’ll be having a special storytime too! Litterpicking: good for your elf, don’t you know! Flynn says 'I am a very special elf as I can reuse the rubbish people put in the bin. My mission is to make Bedford cleaner and ensure that everyone uses a bin and recycle where they can.' ! An elf that can reuse rubbish is a VERY HELPFUL ELF!!
As for the loyalty cards – why should the grown-ups have all the fun and benefits of a loyalty card? We’re launching a card where young kiosk-ers (if that wasn’t a word, it is now!) can collect points every time they purchase a treat or drink from the Kiosk at the Park. On Friday we’ll be introducing the scheme and giving out loyalty cards.
We’ve had a brilliant summer so far – we’ve been story-writing, paper doll making, and colouring; we’ve had a visit from the playhouse tent, a storytime bonanza, and LOTS of sunshine! There’s still plenty of time to make some paper dolls for the world record attempt and to enter our 500 words of summer competition, and we’d love to see you on Friday for some elf-tatsic litter-picking and to claim your loyalty cards.
Hurrah for Fridays!
