Children from Springfield Infants school, Ipswich take part in the St Elizabeth Pigs gone wilds event by painting four mini pigs.

The 30 junior pigs which have been artistically decorated by schools and youth groups in Ipswich over recent weeks will be on show at Trinity Park during the Suffolk Show.

The pigs will be found on various stands around the showground - including our tea tent - and will be huddled in groups of three or four.

St Elizabeth’s Hospice, which is spearheading the Pigs Gone Wild trail coming to Ipswich this summer, is urging children to seek out not only the pigs they helped to paint but also the others on show.

Norman Lloyd, Pigs Gone Wild project manager, said: “We are really excited to be able to reveal and show off all the fantastic junior pigs at this year’s Suffolk Show and would like to thank our sponsors who are hosting the juniors on their stands.

“Each junior looks amazing and tells a story, having been designed and created so lovingly and with such thought by every school. We are really impressed with the ideas the schoolchildren came up with for their pigs, which is shown not only through their design, but also their brilliant names!”

Families can take selfies with the pigs - but please do not touch or climb on them - and share them with us via social media.

Norman added: “It’s a great opportunity for people to get a first look at the junior pigs before they go onto the trail on June 27 and we’re looking forward to seeing some selfies of people with the pigs, practicing ready for the big trail.”

After the show, the pigs will be taken back to their sty where they will be stored until June 27 when the trail goes live in Ipswich town centre.

The 30 junior pigs will be displayed at undercover locations while their large siblings are being given a weatherproof coating to enable them to stay outside.

These will be dotted around town with several along the Waterfront, some in shopping centres and others located in the main parks in the town.

Maps will be printed by the hospice detailing the locations, or you can download an app which will allow you to scan a code on each pig and earn rewards depending on how many you collect.
