Wollerton URC Treasure Hunt 2011

Treasure hunters enjoy tea together
One of the hottest days of the year (Sunday 26th June) saw approximately fifteen carloads of local residents and friends set off on the annual car treasure hunt ably organised by Rachel Harrington and her team. This year’s route took those who followed it successfully through Hodnet, Peplow, Great Bolas, Ercall Heath, Howle, Childs Ercall and Stoke-on-Tern before returning to Wollerton Bowling Club for a hard-earned buffet tea.
As ever, the well-designed cryptic clues left some participants going round in circles well off the intended route. It was possible to collect 136 points through a combination of correct answers, right mileage and acquiring six “treasures”. Whilst some teams struggled to get anywhere near this total, the winning team scored 106, closely followed by second place with 99 and third with 95.
Well done to everyone who took part, newcomers as well as old hands.
