A host of yellow and blue teddies hidden in Honiton from the end of May are raising awareness of a friendship group for retired people.
Honiton U3A (University of the Third Age) is marking National U3A Day on Wednesday, June 2, with a hunt the teddy competition, with prizes donated by local businesses.
From Friday, May 28, until Friday, June 4, spot the knitted bears, in the blue and yellow colours of the U3A, in the windows of shops and businesses in the town centre.
Entry forms for the Spot the Teddies competition are available from May 28 from the town’s library, or downloaded from the Honiton U3A website.
Entry forms can also be picked up from the Honiton U3A stall, outside St. Paul’s Church, in the High Street, between 11 am. and 1pm.
The stall is part of the national celebrations, explaining the aims of the group, its creative and leisure activities, and to welcome new members.
Peter Halse, Honiton U3A chairman, said: “We hope as many people as possible will come along to our High Street stall and find out what U3A is all about.
“National U3A Day is a chance for us all to celebrate U3A’s aims to learn, laugh, live.”
