App helps wolf hunters in Bury St Edmunds...

Visitors to Bury St Edmunds town centre who’ve wished they could find all 26 wolves on the town’s art trail now have a way to have their wish granted. They may have already seen the Wishing Wolf installed in Cornhill Walk as part of the trail – but this week a special App has been launched to help discover the rest of the wolf pack.

ViewRanger, the Cambridge-based outdoor guide, mapping and navigation app, has teamed up with the trail organisers to create a digital route for the Wolf Trail, helping visitors to Bury make the most of this exciting initiative, which has been made possible thanks to the Business Improvement District (BID) organisation Ourburystedmunds, working with partners who make up the ‘Town Team’ group.

Chief Executive of Ourburystedmunds Mark Cordell said: “We’ve been encouraging people to make a wish when they visit the Wishing Wolf, which children have loved – they have been touching his nose or blowing him a kiss as they wish and I really hope that some of their wishes do come true.

“But if their wish is to find all the wolves on the trail then ViewRanger can grant it for them. It’s great to be partnering with them to add a digital dimension to our trail. The Wolf Trail is already a great success with local residents, and we hope that having the trail on ViewRanger will encourage visitors from further afield to come and discover these impressive artworks.”

Thanks to an enthusiastic member of staff at ViewRanger, the Wolf Trail route can now be downloaded for free onto the ViewRanger app, accurately guiding route followers to each of the wolves and giving information about the wolf and the artist that created it, with photographs and directions.

The Wishing Wolf is a collection point for competition entry forms connected to the Wolf Trail. Two competitions to find the wolves are running throughout the summer and entry forms from the town’s tourist information points may be posted in the wolf. Michelle Freeman from the arts and crafts group The Crafty Foxes, who designed the Wishing Wolf, is also running a short story and picture competition in conjunction with Denny Bros and entries should be posted in the wolf.

The ViewRanger App is free to install and can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play. More information about the Wolf Trail can be found here or on social media using #BuryWolfTrail. The trail will run until St Edmund’s Day, 20 November.
