Have a quacking Christmas in Lichfield this year with the arrival of a free Minster Duck Christmas Trail to entertain children over the festive season. Lichfield District Council's visitor economy team, Visit Lichfield, has launched a festive treat for children over the age of three. The free tourist trail takes youngsters on a whistle-stop tour of Lichfield city centre, including the Market Square, Bird Street, Minster Pool Walk and Dam Street. Along the way, children need to spot eight special Minster Duck themed stickers in shop windows that feature different Christmas decorations. The first 200 children to spot all the decorations and complete their trails will be rewarded with a mini rubber duck from the Visitor Information Centre in St Mary's, in Market Square, Lichfield city centre.



Councillor Iain Eadie, Lichfield District Council's Cabinet member responsible for Visitor Economy, said: "We all know that children can find going round the shops boring, so we hope this little bit of fun keeps them entertained. With something to do and a rubber duck prize for the first 200 children taking part in the trail, we hope this puts a smile on their faces." To coincide with the duck trail, Visit Lichfield is also running a Christmas tree drawing competition, with the chance to win a cuddly toy duck that quacks when squeezed. Added Councillor Eadie: "I'm looking forward to seeing all the entries and finding a loving home for our Minster Duck soft toy." Judging the entries alongside Councillor Eadie, will be The Rt Revd Jan McFarlane, Canon Custos of Lichfield Cathedral and Diocese of Lichfield Assistant Bishop.



The Minster Duck Christmas Trail and the Christmas tree drawing competition are both available from now until 23 December 2021 from Lichfield's Visitor Information Centre in St Mary's on Lichfield's Market Square. They can also be downloaded and printed at home by going to www.visitlichfield.co.uk/minsterduck
