The elves are plotting their Sudbury Town festive takeover and they've started to pop up in shop windows all over town.... can you help us find them all? There are prizes for everyone who completes the trail!

 

Why they chose Sudbury, we don't know. What we do know is that we need your help rounding them all up.
