Coronavirus (Covid-19): service updates, support and health advice.

Your chance to win a share of £10,000 and support local traders

This summer, 16 bright and beautiful bees decorated by local artists will be buzzing about on our local high streets and community spaces.

From Saturday 24 July to Saturday 18 September, you can ‘collect’ these bees by taking a photo of yourself with them and entering a weekly draw to win £150 vouchers per South Gloucestershire high street, to spend with our independent traders.

The trail is part of our campaign to support local high street traders who have so much to offer customers – whether it’s food and drink with friends and family, shopping for essentials, leisure, learning or looking good.

How to enter

  1. find your two bees on a South Gloucestershire high street – use the Bee Trail map to discover the location of the bees on the high street
  2. take a selfie with your mobile device at the first bee – you can then scan the QR code or website link displayed on the information panel (see example below) to access our competition site and upload your photograph, name and details (you must be over 16 years old to submit a photograph)
  3. repeat step 2, but at the second bee at the same high street location – you are now entered into the competition
  4. enjoy the hive of activity in the high street and then repeat the process on a different high street for a chance to win again
  5. If you are a winner, we will let you know by email within five days of entering the draw
