If so, the good news is that another swap shop event is being held at the East of England Co-op store in Combs Ford, Stowmarket on Monday, September 2.

The fun drop-in event will run from 12 noon to 3pm, and will give children a chance to exchange stickers with other fans of Elmer the Patchwork Elephant who have been busy following the trail around Ipswich over the summer.

Meanwhile, the next batch of in-demand Elmer stickers is due to arrive in stores soon. The sticker books have been so successful that 150,000 packs of new stickers have been ordered from Italy.

Stickers are due to arrive in East of England Co-op stores and at Elmer HQ, Ipswich Tourist Information and St Elizabeth Hospice shops in the next few days.
