Step back in time with Berkhamsted dinosaur trail


We've partnered with Age UK to bring a free family dinosaur trail  to Berkhamsted.

The interactive trail, which can be found on the LoyalFree app, launches on Monday 1 August and will run over the summer until Wednesday 31 August.

There are 12 locations around Berkhamsted and at each spot there is a poster with a dinosaur question. Participants can stomp along the trail and discover the answers by scanning the QR code on each poster. Explorers who complete the trail, visiting all locations and scanning the QR codes will be entered into a prize draw to win a range of great goodies from participating shops.

Keep your eyes peeled for anagram letters along the way - those who find all the letters and can unscramble them, solving the anagram can submit their answers for an additional chance to win.

Age UK Dacorum wants to raise awareness of the work it does for older people and their carers in Dacorum. Donations can be made to support Age UK Dacorum via its JustGiving page, links can be found on the trail posters.

Cllr Alan Anderson, our Portfolio Holder for Place, said: “This is a great opportunity for residents and visitors to enjoy our local high streets over the summer holidays, and we are pleased to be able to offer this alongside Age UK Dacorum to promote the great work that it does.”

Charlie Hussey, Development Officer at Age UK Dacorum, said: "Age UK Dacorum is very proud and happy to be part of this wonderful, educational, family initiative. A natural alliance for us, as summer school holidays are often a time when grandparents look after their grandchildren, and this is an ideal opportunity for all to participate in a fun activity."

LoyalFree’s Partnership Manager, Sophie Carrick, said: “We are delighted to be able to deliver this trail to our partners. We hope that both locals and visitors to Berkhamsted can enjoy this educational trail, learn some new fascinating facts and enjoy what Berkhamsted has to offer.”

Taking part in the trail is easy. Download the free LoyalFree app and head to the trails section of the app for more information.
