The DFG Great Easter Egg Treasure Hunt Winner
..to everyone who completed the trail of clues around the village. Apparently it took between 2 and 4 hours to complete for most of you. We are very grateful to Sandie at the Post Office who collected the entries and donated the cream eggs to everyone who entered.
The results were very close with only a 3 or 4 answers separating the top half dozen entries. The answers that eluded most people were:
- the special nature of the thatched bus shelter by The Green-answer, it is Grade 2 Listed
- the date and location of the founding of The Women's Institute -answer, Stoney Creek, Ontario, Canada in 1897 ( to be found on a plate at the base of the maple tree on the pathway opposite the Bus Shelter at the end of Cawston Lane)
- the tree behind the same bus shelter is a Beech Tree, more exactly it is a copper beech.
The most perceptive and amusing answer to the question as to what kind of tree it was? "A big one"
- what rises from the ashes of number 6? - "daffodils and heather"
With 39 correct answers out of 40 congratulations go to Catherine Cherrett of Hall Close who wins the Giant Egg.
Winner Catherine said" I really enjoyed following the clues around the village although I had to check with some friends about the Ferrieres question . We sat eating chips in the bus shelter trying to work out what was (almost) unique about it! It took us a couple of hours to complete the trail . Even Mum and Dad learned a few things about the village."
Very well done also to Dee Mills of Sandford Way and Jack Pearson of Rugby Road who got 38 and 37 points respectively and won eggs too.
