Muscovy and Eeli’s Jigsaw colouring challenge 2019:

Muscovy and Eeli have hidden four paper jigsaw parts around Ely. See if you can find all four. Then cut out the jigsaw shapes and stick all four together. Colour them in. Bring in the completed jigsaw to Ely Tourist information, and we’ll arrange for you to pick up a free gift. Please feel free to share your coloured jigsaw on social media with us, we would love to see them. Competition finishes August bank holiday Monday.
