After a summer of swan spotting our giant colourful sculptures will go to auction and help raise funds for the Mayor’s Charities and a future similar project. The Swan Trail Auction will present a unique opportunity to bid for one of the ten swans. Bidding will be taking place online and in person, using social media and the Town Council website.
