Starting on Monday July 1, Wally hunters will have until July 27 to spot all the mini Wally’s on display at:

• Abracadabra Teddy Bears

• Beauty, Bump & Baby

• Saffron Walden Tourist Information Centre

• Saffron Walden Library

Those who find him can win prizes, including Wally stickers, books and posters.

To take part, hunters need to pick up a ‘Find Wally!’ search list at any of the places listed above.

Collecting cards and handing them in at Harts Book Room will win Wally stickers and an entry for a Where’s Wally? Grand Prize to be drawn at Saffron Walden Library on Saturday July 27.

In celebration of Wally’s longevity and popularity, the publisher, Walker Books, is teaming up with the Booksellers Association’s Indiebound ‘Get Local’ campaign and 100 independent bookshops across the country, including Harts Book Room in Saffron Walden, to encourage people to have fun and visit local businesses.
