This October half term families in either Selby, Tadcaster or Sherburn in Elmet can hunt down and bring ‘Monster Villains’ to life on their smartphones.
A free and creepy (but also extremely cute) family trail of monsters is going live in places across the UK to give families a socially distanced, contactless and fun activity to do in October.
The trail to find the 10 ‘Monster Villains’ takes on average about 45 minutes to complete and is completely free for families to take part in. At around 1.5 miles or 3,500 steps it should keep families fit and active too, while providing a fun way to get back to the high street.
The Safari works by utilising contactless QR codes, without the need for families to download or sign up to anything. 10 vinyl window monsters, all specially created for this project have been placed in each of Selby District’s towns, Selby, Tadcaster and Sherburn in Elmet, for families to hunt down.
Martin Blackwell, former CEO of ATCM and the Charity Retail Association, who is coordinating the project nationally, said, “I loved the idea of a “safari on the high street”! We had such wonderful feedback from families over the Summer we just had to create a new story. If something fun like this can help make families and kids feel good about going back out onto the high street in a safe way then we’ve done our job.”

We are carrying out a survey to find out what people do and where they go if they have an urgent health condition that needs treating on the same day. I would be grateful if you could share this with your communities and ask them to post it in relevant forums.
Urgent care survey 2020: What do you do if you need urgent medical attention on the same day?
Urgent care services are for when you need medical advice or treatment for a health condition on the same day.
Urgent care covers conditions which are not life threatening but cannot wait until a routine appointment with your GP or other healthcare professional is available. These may be conditions and injuries such as:
In order to provide a good service, we want to understand what you already know about urgent care in the Vale of York and when to use it.
We want to ask a few questions about what you do if you need medical attention on the same day, but are not seriously injured. We also want to know how you would prefer to access services. This includes your views on medical advice over the telephone and the use of digital technology (such as video consultations).
