Hunt the diamonds

YOUNGSTERS have put together some exciting activities to help pass the time during the summer holidays.

Members of the 6th Clevedon West Brownies have organised some treasure hunts to raise money for the unit.

The first is a visual one and is suitable for all ages.

The brownies have hidden a number of ‘diamonds’ in local shop windows and the accompanying story is that someone has run off with the Queen’s jewels. The treasure hunter’s task is to find each diamond and crack a code to reveal letters that together will form the name of the thief.

The second treasure hunt is more suitable for key stage two aged children through to adults.

It comprises a two-and-a-half mile circular walk around Clevedon.

The scenario is similar to the first and hunters are required to solve clues along the route and eliminate various suspects in a line-up of potential rogues to reveal the identity of the thief.

When either crime has been solved, treasure hunters are invited to email the brownies with their answer and all correct entries will be entered into two prize draws, to take place on September 7.

It costs �5 to take part in each hunt and participants will receive a pack containing all they need to go out in search of the missing jewels.

The prize for both competitions will be tickets to an attraction of the winner’s choice, up to the value of 10 per cent of the money raised in each case.

Anyone interested in taking part can call Ruth Wakefield on 07775 910954 or Suzanne on 07791 537067 or email
