Inter Care has put on many annual Treasure Hunts – all fun and all challenging – 2019’s event proved to be no exception….
This year the Treasure Hunt was held at The Queens Head, 20 Church Street, Billesdon, Leicestershire, LE7 9AE on Wednesday 19th June 2019.
Created and delivered once again by Linda Lord exclusively for Inter Care, it is noteworthy that 2019 is Linda’s 11th consecutive successful Treasure Hunt and, I can assure you that despite being faced with another challenging quiz a good time was had by all teams. A particular mention to the lovely June weather we enjoyed should also be noted! – doesn’t it make all the difference?!
All ten teams rendezvoused at the pub’s car park for 7pm sharp, then armed with clip boards and question sheets were released into the historic and prize winning village of Billesdon to seek ‘the treasure’ by identifying the answers to some rather cryptic clues! We all met up again an hour or so later to enjoy a hot meal and a well-earned drink, to compare notes and enjoy the ambience I.e. What appeared to be a regional convention of Morris Dancers(!) yet was most probably an Ale (a non-competitive gathering of dancers) was taking place in the car park at the same time so our civilized event was somewhat over shadowed and featured an unexpected soundtrack.
After dinner the raffle was conducted and several grinning faces collected some rather unique prizes! Winners and runner up were finally announced – A heroic effort from the Runner Up team, Leicester CC1 and a big well done to winning team My Pointless Friend Richard for once again ‘collecting the silverware’! How DO they do it I hear you ask … Well, they told us their secret which is this – throughout the year they practice Geocaching!! (google it)
THANK YOU(!) to everyone who attended. The event was a sell-out and we would like to once again thank Linda Lord for all of her hard work in making the evening a success as always. Including proceeds from the raffle – For Inter Care, the event raised a total of £523!
