Friskney W.I. recently held a Car Treasure Hunt, to raise funds for their Centenary celebration next year.

Thirteen cars took part, and the teams had to solve over 30 clues on the way around the course, as well as collecting 5 specified items.

Comments made afterwards ranged from “interesting set of clues which didn’t tax the brain too hard” to “just like that crossword clue - easy when you see the answer” to “great afternoon drive round the area”.

The prizes, which were generously donated by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Park, Boston Bowl, and Oaken Tea Rooms, were won by:

   1st   Black Labs

   2nd Bairds on Tour

   3rd Jolly Hunters

Raffle prizes were won by:  Cheshire Cats, Crafty Girls, Geezers Angels, Maureen’s Followers and Lost Boys.

The Committee would like to thank all the teams for their support.
