Freaky Fruit (and Veg) Scarecrow Trail

Running until the end of October 2021 for this Halloween, you can take part in a family-friendly, spook-tacular trail across Hereford city centre.

Explore the city as you search for eight Herefordshire produce themed scarecrows hiding in local businesses; each Scarecrow has their own riddle to answer – can you answer all eight?

How it works:

  1. Download the LoyalFree app and find the Freaky Fruit (& Veg) Trail in the ‘Trails’ section.
  2. Click on the trail to find your nearest location and get started! Note: we recommend saving the Matrix Hereford until last as this is where you will collect your prize.
  3. Find the scarecrow in each location and read its riddle.
  4. Once you know the solution to the riddle, tell a member of staff who will provide the QR code for you to scan.
  5. Head to the next location!

Once you’ve answered the riddles and scanned the codes at every location, it’s time for you to get your prize! Show the completed trail on your phone to the team members at The Matrix to collect.
