Find Wally in Angus during October holiday

A POPULAR cartoon character will be playing a bit of hide and seek with Angus children over the October holidays.

Wally, the titular character of the ‘Where’s Wally’ series will be coming to libraries around Angus over the October holidays to entertain children.

At Arbroath Library children have the choice of Where’s Wally colouring sheets, a wordsearch, a treasure hunt for a golden Wally hidden somewhere in the library and an opportunity to design their own Where’s Wally scene.

Monifieth Library will be running colouring in activities and other competitions and Carnoustie have decided to incorporate the theme into their chatterbook session on Saturday, November 5 at 10.30 a.m.

The activities will run continuously at Arbroath and Monifieth throughout the holidays and children are encouraged to come along and take part at any time.

All who take part will be entered into a draw to win a ‘Where’s Wally’ book which will be made after the October holidays have come to a close.

The Where’s Wally books were originally published in the United States and Canada in 1987 and illustrated by British man Martin Handford.

In June this year, the previous record of 1052 people dressed as Wally was broken when 3872 people gathered in his distinctive red and white stripey tee shirt in Merrion Street, Dublin.
