rwc_hostcitysmallWhether you’re a rugby fan or not it would be hard not to notice that the Rugby World Cup 2015 has come to England and starts today (England v Fiji at Twickenham). It’s all very exciting here in Gloucester because our rugby ground in Kingsholm is hosting 4 matches, starting with Tonga v Georgia tomorrow.

It’s a real boost for our small city and it’s not just sports enthusiasts who will benefit when the World Cup kicks off. An official economic study into the impact of the tournament says it’s going to bring £48 million of economic activity into the city.

As for us we’re just enjoying all the Rugby related hype and activities that have been taking place around the City over the last few weeks, most notably following the Scrumpty trail. Inspired by the legend of Humpty Dumpty artists from around the country created twenty 5 feet tall Scrumpty mascots.

The trail can easily be completed in a couple of hours but it’s worth allowing a whole day to take in the historic sights you’ll discover along the way such as the Cathedral and the Docks. For little 3 year old legs I recommend plenty of pitstops with favourite snacks, a Daddy on hand for shoulder carries and a small toy for playing hide and seek in the cloisters garden at the Cathedral! (one of E’s favourite pastimes on any given day)
