The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is taking place in June, giving us a bank holiday on Friday, June 3.
As the excitement builds, London’s Women’s Institute (WI) are putting crafted toy dogs around London.
The knitted corgis, named WInnie (or, Winnie), are made by WI members and the general public.
Corgis are the breed of the Queen’s dogs, so they’re the breed of choice here naturally.
The toys will be hidden across the capital, and they can be kept if found. One of them will have a special code attached to it which can be used to redeem a big prize.
The code finder will get two tickets to a Big Jubilee Lunch event in London on June 5, making this an opportunity of a lifetime.
Anyone can participate in the search and anyone can add more knitted corgis to the mix.
Speaking to The Telegraph, Ann Jones, chair of the National Federation of Women’s Institutes said: ‘Knitters of all skill levels are encouraged to join in, with the pattern designed for those at a relatively beginner level.
‘For those lucky ones who find the corgis, they can visit the WI website to map where they have found it and also post on social media using hashtag #WheresWInnie.
‘We hope that WInnie the corgi will brighten the day of anyone who finds her.’
More corgis will be hidden across England and the fun search begins in May.
So keep your eyes peels in two months – you might just get to attend a Royal event.
