Award winning Festival Director to retire

For the past six years the ever popular Cotswold Hare Trail has been run by Festival Director, Florence Beetlestone. She has been responsible from its initial beginnings in Cirencester to its current growth covering the whole of the Cotswold Region. She has doggedly and tirelessly built up the highly successful hare sculpture trail over the years, so that it now attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors to the area from all over the world. In so doing she has helped the Cotswold Hare Trail to raise more than £135 000 for local charities.

Florence now looks forward to seeing a new Director take on the challenge of keeping the hares in the spotlight. She emphasized “Since I have been running the recent trails, without my input currently no further events are planned. However this is a wonderful opportunity for someone now to develop. I shall remain as President of the Cotswolds Hare Trail but this will definitely be a ” back seat role!”
