River Trip: leaving HVH at 9.30am
By Haddenham Webteam - 27th July 2013 7:00pm
Haddenham Sports & Social Club hosted a walking treasure hunt on Saturday afternoon, a wonderful opportunity for families to get out and about, exploring the village and enjoying a fun time together.
Creative talent Helen Lewis was responsible for crafting the clever set of puzzles, all of which were based on notable, intriguing and sometimes slightly wacky house names to be seen around Haddenham
Thankfully the weather stayed warm and dry throughout the event, despite TV and radio's dire predictions of heavy thundery rain. This arrived much later than forecast, by which time all treasure hunters had managed to return to the clubhouse ready to consume some of the delicious looking hot dogs and hamburgers, cooked to perfection by head chef, bottle washer and club chairman, Ian Bamford.
To top it all off, the youngsters were given goody bags to enjoy — although the chance of these getting home with any of the consumable goodies still intact looked highly remote!
