The Naughty Elves are back in Painswick!

Following on from the amazing success of last year, the Naughty Elves will be back once again in picturesque Painswick over the first week of the school holidays.

The Painswick Naughty Elf Trail will run from December 18 - 23, with a £200 John Lewis voucher as the star prize!

More than 20 cheeky Christmas elves will be up to all kinds of mischief in window displays around the village, to delight children and adults alike.

There will be a map to follow to help spot the elves and, thanks to generous sponsorship from local businesses, each trail map purchased brings a chance to win the £200 John Lewis voucher.

Maps cost just £3 each and can be purchased at www.naughtyelftrail.co.uk 

The event is being run by Friends of the Croft School (FOTCS), a registered charity (number 1030573), who work hard to raise much-needed funds for the village school in Painswick.

Current projects include regenerating the school pond and forest school area, which will benefit all children there now and in the future.

A spokesperson for FOTCS said: "We are thrilled to be bringing the Naughty Elf Trail back for its second year and we cannot wait for Painswick to be alive with the sound of amusement and festive cheer once again.

"We hope this will keep the children entertained in the school Christmas holidays whilst also being able to edge us towards our fundraising goal."
