The much anticipated Lincoln Imp Trail, hosted by Lincoln BIG, will be dazzling Lincoln city centre over the summer and both ourselves and The Cornhill Quarter will have an IMP waiting to be found!

From Saturday 3rd July to Wednesday 8th September 2021, a colourful brigade of 31 cheeky IMPs will be on show around the City, waiting for locals and visitors to find them.

The Cornhill Quarter are proud to sponsor the Yellowbelly IMP - designed by Sofia Barton of Inspiratori Art. Glistening in gold leaf, it will take pride of place in the rejuvenated Cornhill Quarter in Lincoln.

Not only that, we are also proud to be able to help Digby Church of England Primary School secure a place on the Education Trail, which will run alongside the main trail this summer and feature over 50 IMP's designed and decorated by the county's schools. 

The school will be able to keep their IMP once the trail has finished in September, along with a wealth of learning resources and activities, which include direct links to Ofsted’s Intent, IMPlementation and IMPact framework and the National Curriculum across multiple subject areas. 

We popped along to see their IMP - affectionately known as 'Digby' - as he was unveiled to the school children, teachers, parents and members of the local community. 

Sharon Keane of Digby Primary School commented: 

Digby Church of England School were thrilled to be sponsored by The Lincolnshire Co-op and Henry Young Fund. The vision for our Imp was to reflect the essential elements of our small school, our values, our community and the local rural area.
The children were tasked with creating their own Imp designs, we then picked our favourite features to collaborate together to form our Imp, ‘Digby’. We cannot wait to see him in pride of place on the trail and to welcome him back to Digby School soon, where we have planned many adventures for him. 

Digby will be hiding not far from Yellowbelly in the Cornhill Quarter. 

Will you be joining the trail? Can you find both Yellowbelly and Digby? Why not send us a picture when you've found them to: and we may use them in future publications.
