There will be questions that can be answered from the comfort of your car, others you will need to park safely and go for a wonder round, children will have some of their own questions and things to do, plus there will be items to collect in the case of a tie breaker so we hope there will be something for everyone. We will be setting cars off from Hatherleigh Town car park between 1.30 and 3.30pm, please phone either Bev on 811219 or Louise on 811255 to pre book your car (and departure time) at a reduced price of £5 or come along on the day for £7 per car. We would like to thank all the local pubs and shops who have kindly donated some fantastic prizes for our prize draw, they have been very generous. The barbecue will start from 5pm and we will give the results of the car treasure hunt and the fab prize draw at approximately 6pm. So if on May 4th you are aware of lots of slow moving traffic, or people staring at your house please don’t be alarmed, they are not “casing the joint” it’s just a treasure hunt! We really hope to see you on the 4th of May and hope you have a lovely time. Louise Bater
