This year commemorates 700 years since King Edward II honoured Tring by granting it a charter.
Today was Tring Charter 700 Day and to mark this, the Church Square was Yarn Bombed!
We have Little Miss A's Nana staying with us at the moment and she's a keen knitter, so when I saw a few photos early this morning on Facebook of the yarn bombing, I thought it would be fun to go and see it for ourselves. I'm really glad we did.
The whole Square had been decorated with knitting by lots of different groups including schools and knitting groups. The lamp posts, benches, Church gates, signposts, post box and even the trees had been bombed!
My favourite was definitely the bench that had become an Elmer Elephant!
There was a carriage with 2 horses there when we arrived. This was there to take the Mayor and Town Crier to all the local schools to re-enact the Charter. Little Miss A enjoyed meeting the horses.
Little Miss A's favourite thing was definitely the bicycle! It was so brilliantly decorated! She kept going back to this over and over again.
I'm really pleased we went along today. It was so colourful and great fun to see!
There are lots of activities and events going on to celebrate 700 years of Tring's Heritage. You can see more details on the Tring 700 website.
