Family Treasure Hunt


A fun activity for all the family as you follow the map and the find the clues to discover the ultimate treasure! Walk or jog the route at your own pace and enjoy the challenge.

The route map guides you around a loop from start to finish and clues will test your powers of observation as you search for letters on objects along the way. Collect the letters, solve the anagram and have lots of fun.

The three mile route is mostly on residential roads and paths. You are advised to wear walking shoes or boots as it might be muddy in places.

Kids’ Sports

Get the kids active with two hours of sports, including tag rugby, pop lacrosse, kick rounders, and mini athletics.

All abilities welcome – no need to have played any sports before. Bring sensible clothes— a school PE or football kit is fine with sensible footwear (no spikes!) and waterproofs. Also a healthy snack and a water bottle or drink (not fizzy).

Our leader is a qualified Sports teacher and will be accompanied by a team of volunteers.
