Follow the Fosse Foxes and win!

Blaby District Council’s Fosse Foxes Tourism Trail has been a huge hit since its launch in 2021 and now it’s back in the spotlight, bigger and better than ever thanks to the launch of a unique competition. The trail was established to showcase the wonderful attractions Blaby District has to offer, tying in with the foxes trail at Fosse Park.

Now, with summer just around the corner, the team at Visit Blaby District is encouraging everyone to take a new look at the Fosse Foxes, and their locations, and perhaps pick up a prize for doing so. Thanks to a partnership with local artists, the Cosby Crafters, there are 18 unique, handmade foxes on offer as prizes in the Win a Foxy Friend competition.

To take part and be in with a chance to win a Foxy Friend, all people have to do is take a photo of their favourite Fosse Fox, post it to social media and tag @visitblaby and #fossefoxes. It’s a real ‘money can’t buy’ prize.

The Cosby Crafters is a twice weekly community group for adults of any ability to get together, make friends and have fun creating. They are currently busy making items for the annual Cosby Yarn Bomb event running from 11 to 30 August and the Community Togetherness Day on Sun 27 August. Anyone interested in finding out more check them out on Facebook @cosbyyarnbomb @cosbycrafters.

The Fosse Foxes competition runs until 30 June and winners will be picked in a random draw after the closing date and announced by 7 July. You can find all the competition details and explore an interactive map of the trail on the Visit Blaby District website as well as read a ‘meet the makers’ section to find out more about each Cosby Crafter along with the name of the fox they have crafted.

You can also find out about our Fosse Foxes, including the latest edition at New Lubbesthorpe. The hand painted sculptures were designed by local artists Pickle Illustration. Each symbol on the fox represents one of the tourism attractions on the trail.
