Thornbunnies Hop into Town

The Thornbunny family from Burrowwood visited Thornbury in March and have fallen in love with the town and all it has to offer.

Thornbunny Fortnight

The Thornbunnies have visited 30 businesses and attractions within the area, and now have a real insight into why this town is so sought after.

To see the photos of their antics on tour, visit the Chamber's facebook page.

As you can see from the photo, they have been given the Freedom of the Town by the Mayor, Helen Harrison who was delighted to perform this rare ceremony.


However, a tragedy has befallen Mr and Mrs Thornbunny - 30 Thornbunnies are lost.

While the parents were enjoying tea at Thornbury Castle, the bunnies went out to play and simply vanished.

The parents have been interviewed by the local police, triggering a hunt in the locality.

Local PC Sean White is leading the investigation and has requested members of the community to help reunite the bunnies with their parents.

Mr and Mrs Thornbunny think the bunnies want to stay in Thornbury and have probably returned to the places they have visited during March.

Help Find the Thornbunnies

You can help by picking up a Wordsearch form from Surroundings, Finishing Touches, the Library and Gems of Thornbury - or click here to download a copy.

You can then search the 30 locations to see if you can find a bunny - click here for the full list.

Each bunny has a name tag which thankfully Mr and Mrs Thornbury have placed on their offspring for just such an occasion.

You need to find the name of the bunny on the Wordsearch and when all have been found, submit the form to one of the four businesses mentioned above.

There will be a reward as all forms will be submitted into a raffle with Thornbury Gift Vouchers for the winners.

Click here to download a copy of the competition rules.

The Mayor has joined the appeal and requests members of the community to participate to ensure a happy ending.
