A Christmas trail featuring 13 giant models made from toy bricks is under way in Bishop's Stortford town centre.

The festive fun has been organised by the town's BID (Business Improvement District). The traders' organisation has also sponsored the town council's Christmas tree in Market Square and is supporting the 'Be a Santa to a Senior' grotto in Jackson Square.

BID manager Gina Thomas explained: "Find the 13 festive characters made of toy bricks, including a life-sized snowman, reindeer and Father Christmas.

"Each one has a letter next to it. Simply arrange the letters to make a Christmas-themed word. Then enter our free prize draw for your chance to win an iPad."

Each Christmas character has been intricately constructed from tens of thousands of bricks. Father Christmas himself is made of an amazing 43,968! Each model on the trail features an information sheet detailing how long it took to build and how many bricks were needed.

The trail guide can be picked up from Santa's grotto in Jackson Square or the Tourist Information Centre in Market Square. The competition closes on January 3. Find out more at discoverstortford.co.uk/events/bricklive-christmas-trail.
