Where's Bunty?

Okay, we all know the game "Where's Wally?" where you hunt different pictures for a bespectacled man in a crowd. And we've tried to have our fair share of fun doing this project, like the Mission Impossible video of Bunty heading to Yorkshire to find his roots.

Well, I've now taken 4 strands of bunting out around town and "hidden" them in shops. These bits of bunting are our "strange" types, not the usual yellow, green, white, and polkadot. Let's meet them!

First of all, Bruce Bunty. Bruce has been all over the world and has many colours to show for it. The middle three jerseys come close to the Australian national champion's jersey, so Bruce it is!

Then we have Gioseppe Bunty. Gioseppe is well known across Italy have been round and round it for many years. The middle three jerseys match the mountains (maglia azzurra) and points (maglia rosso) classifications in the Giro d'Italia, the Italian equivalent of le Tour de France. The end two are more like the Kazakhstan national champion's jersey, a big bike racing country!

Hatty Bunty, named as she is made of felt, has stuck to the traditional colours of France, although her name may well be a diversion from her location.

And finally, Bunty Junior, who is tiny next to her bigger siblings.

So, where are they all? Well, that's up to you to find! If you can find them all, and take pictures of them all you'll get multiple entries into the bike competition! All I'll say is that a couple are in the centre, one is a little south and the other a little east!
