On The Bear Trail!

Bearwood Promoters 'musical bear'

The phrase ‘Follow that bear’ used to be synonymous with the beer guzzling Hofmeister Bear who appeared on our TVs way back in the 80s (ask your parents about the adverts if you’re too young!) but this May it's the turn of Bearwood folk to be in on the act.

We caught up with the We Are Bearwood team to discover more….“We are delighted to let you know that hidden around Bearwood from 17th May to 31st May 2015 will be 30 very special bears.  Each one has been decorated by a local community group, school or business and is waiting to be found. Follow the trail map, which will be available to download here at wearebearwood.org in time for 17 May.”

Bearwood Promoters(our favourite Bearwood Shufflers!), BUDS (Better Understanding of Dementia for Sandwell)  and Thimblemill Library have got involved (check out their very colourful bears) and you can create your own bear to display in our own home as part of the trail at one of We Are Bearwood’s workshops.  The workshops are entirely FREE (our favourite word!) along with all materials you’ll need to decorate them.

The workshops will be at:
Corks Club, High St, 23rd May at 1:30 or 3pm
Thimblemill Library on 24th May at 1:30 or 3pm

BUDS WW1 Remembrance Bear

It’s suitable for all ages so email bearwoodevents@gmail.com to reserve your place and just let them know how many of you to expect.
