It’s a been a summer of Elmer filled fun in Ipswich but this week one of the popular swap shops went on the road.
Organised by the East of England Co-op, children headed to their store in Combs Ford to try and complete their sticker books before the Elmer's Big Parade trail ends in under a weeks time.
Carloline Green, from Rushmere St Andrew said her family have seen a lot of the beautifully painted elephants around Ipswich this summer and are hoping to visit the Elmers on the Waterfront over the next couple of days.
Proving that the trail isn't just for children Mrs Green said; "I'm part of the Run for your Life group and I am looking forward to taking part in their final Elmer run on Friday."
Rosemary Fish,7, was swapping some Elmer stickers with her little brother Lucas,5, but the youngsters from Ipswich can't quite decide which is there favourite elephant.
