If you had popped down to the maze in Bridge End Garden last Wednesday, you would have been in for a big surprise...
CBBC were secretly filming in there for an up and coming program to be aired later this year.
It was kept secret because famed children’s TV presenters Dick and Dom were making a surprise appearance. They are presenting new programs which are expected to be shown in October. It was an exciting morning for the staff there, the production team and the film crew.
Mark Ropkins, the head gardener, may also appear in the episode. He said it was an “exciting morning” for staff, who got to meet the production team and film crew.
Mark said: “It was great fun doing the filming and I can safely say Dick and Dom are far more crazy in the flesh!
“We must have done six takes with each of us bursting into laughter, mainly over Dick’s reaction to one of the surprises...”.
Saffron Walden Town Council has to remain tight-lipped about the finer details in the program as it has been sworn to secrecy.
Find out more this October.
