Parents and children are being invited on a trail to search for dinosaurs as part of a council’s campaign to encourage shopping locally.

The trails will run from August 2 to September 4 in Witney, Carterton and Chipping Norton.

As visitors make their way along the trails, they will be able to view videos of dinosaurs along with some interesting facts about the dinosaur.

There will also be a prize draw to win a family day pass to Cogges Manor Farm.

Duncan Enright, Cabinet Member for Economic Development, said: “I’m really excited about the dinosaurs coming to West Oxfordshire.

“I hope that local families make the most of these excellent trails and come out and find as many dinosaurs as possible.

“It’s so important for our wonderful local businesses that people get out and explore the local areas whilst supporting them.

“The LoyalFree app is a great way to shop and save money at independent shops.

“I’m thrilled that Cogges Manor Farm has offered us this great prize to give away to one lucky family.

“A great day out for all.”

The dinosaur trails are aimed at children and families, but the LoyalFree app also provides trails that are more suited to adults too, such as the Downton Abbey Trail and Witney Historic Sites trail.

The LoyalFree app helps people find local deals, events, information and trails.
