Lost and found

The Wheatsheaf Inn. Start and finish point for treasure hunt

The Wheatsheaf Inn. Start and finish point for treasure hunt

A walking treasure hunt around the village of Thurcaston raised £73 for the Rotary Club of Leicester Novus.

It started and finished at The Wheatsheaf pub, just over the road from the home of Jim and Sally Matthews who devised the quiz.

Fourteen of their friends followed clues and all managed to find some answers, but Sally Matthews had to go and round up a couple of participants who declared themselves thoroughly lost.

Following on from their success in a similar treasure hunt at Burton Overy a year or so ago, husband and wife team of Frazer and Carolyn Robson won the treasure, Ferrero Rocher chocolates wrapped appropriately in gold.

But, being the good chaps they are, they shared them around.
