This took place on Easter Bank Holiday Monday and the route had been researched by Gill Storey and Jean Coughlan who had spent many hours and much petrol (probably including a few pub lunches) driving round the local Kent villages to prepare a very ‘clever plan’ that kept several of us occupied for four hours!
Sadly only seven teams took part which was a great shame after all the planning and out of those seven – two had still to return when we left at 7pm! (Hopefully they just went home for tea.)
As with last year the scoring took place in the Three Horseshoes with a few drinks and burgers and much noise, not that we disagreed with the answers it’s just part of the combative spirit we all felt after wandering around Greatness cemetery; clambering up hills in Lullingstone; searching around Andrews Wood to ending up in Westerham. We visited, in no particular order: Halstead, Shoreham, Lulllingstone, Otford, Kemsing, Eynsford, Farningham, Westerham, Crockenhill, Sevenoaks and Seal.
As a family we never win quizzes – if we aren’t last we’re pleased – but on Monday evening we finally found our niche – we are good at finding things and the King Scott family at last came FIRST! Our score was 74 ¾ and the second team’s score was 74 ½! We are the proud holders of the Annual Treasure Hunt Trophy! It’s enormous but will find a happy home for one year until Easter 2015.
