Kisiki College and how valuable it is to them. He said 'It
is one way of promoting brotherhood in the world.'
Treasure Hunt with a Difference
the Hedgehog and his sister Apple are in big trouble. They
have fallen foul of the Naughty Fairy who lives on Chase
Hill. Ross has disappeared into a cloud of smoke and is
drifting over the town. Apples prickles have withered and
turned curly. Apple has asked the members of Ross Pre-school
Playgroup to help her break the Naughty Fairy's spell.
The playgroup, assisted by the staff at Ross Heritage Centre
and members of Ross-in-Bloom will be having some fun with
a Treasure Hunt around the town during the summer holidays
to help find Ross and restore Apples prickles. They would
very much welcome the help of anyone who would like to take
part in this mammoth and unusual task.
Participants will be given a list of clues and riddles to
solve, leading them to various places around the town. On
the way they will meet friends of Apple to help and guide
them along the way. There will also be a list of treasure
to bring back. All of this and possibly more will be taking
place on Sunday 20th August, between 2pm and 5pm. The cost
will be minimal at £2 but participants will need to bring
along a bit more money in case they need to purchase any
of their treasure when they have solved the clues.
is a preliminary notice of the event and further details
with the full story of how Ross and Apple fell foul of the
Naughty fairy will be published nearer the time.
