The Winners:
Thank-you to everyone who took part in our Hurst Treasure Hunt over the Jubilee weekend. We hope you enjoyed the challenge!
Most of the clues were correctly solved by at least one team, and although there were a few that left you all stumped, there were some very creative and inventive alternative answers!
Our congratulations go to the top four teams:
  • Hurstborn! - first overall, and the highest scores in sections 2, 3 and 4
  • The Denley's - a fine second place, including the highest score for section 1
  • Si & Nic - a valiant third place, with some high scores in the picture clues
  • Buttercup Babes - rounding off the top four, helped by some of the highest scores in the picture clues, and joint first place in the cryptic questions in section 3
Well done to everyone who competed!
You are invited to join a free treasure hunt around the village over the Jubilee weekend.
Split into four sections each just over a mile, the hunt follows roads and footpaths around the village.
There is a set of picture clues for things to spot in each section, along with some crossword-style cryptic clues. A full set of directions is provided for each section.
If you wish to take part then please use the links below to download the information.
