Not all of the locations have stickers to give out, but you can draw a smiley face in the circles on p.9 for those ones. If one the sticker locations is closed, you can collect an extra sticker from the next location.

There is also a prize-draw with a chance to win a micro-scooter, theatre tickets or a goody bag. To take part, you need to do the trail and find out what each of the nine Meerkats is holding. Write down the answers on the prize-draw entry form on the back of the booklet, or print one out. Return the entry form to us by 31 December to be entered into the prize-draw.
