Three Counties Radio Feb17

Regular listeners to BBC Three Counties Radio may be familiar with its 'Treasure Quest' programme.

The idea is that two teams -- one representing BBC 3CR listeners and the other BBC Northampton's -- compete in a 'treasure hunt' style race, solving a number of geographically specific clues as they chase around the countryside within their respective broadcast areas.

On Saturday morning, 4th February, presenter Tim Wheeler arrived in Haddenham looking for a clue relating to a 'crafty activity'.

After a brief pause outside Tickety Brew cafe on Banks Parade, the 3CR presenter and his driver Ernie found their way to the community library where they conducted a live-on-air chat to library trustee and volunteer, Susan Toner.

Despite the challenge of speaking live to a large listening audience across Beds, Herts, Bucks and Northamptonshire, Susan provided a very articulate description of the regular Saturday morning activities in the library, including the Craft Club and the Lego Club.

For more details of these and other activities offered by Haddenhamm Community Library, see the library website.
