If you are looking for a way to keep the children occupied during the half-term holidays, try the Cheltenham treasure hunt Monday 24 October.

This enjoyable and healthy activity day will encourage friends and families to discover and explore the Regency Spa town of Cheltenham. The treasure hunt will start at 10am and conclude at 4pm.

The start location for the treasure hunt will be in the Montpellier room in the Municipal offices in Cheltenham. Clues will be suited to adults and children, with a mix of observational, cryptic and mathematical, and the answers will found on buildings, information boards, street signs, gravestones etc. Teams will set off at 5 minute intervals following a short briefing. Participants can book a 30 minute starting time slot and teams will set off at the next available 5 minute interval after arrival in the Montpellier Room.

Teas, coffees and cakes will available on the day and there will also be a raffle taking place. There will be a prize for the winning family of the treasure hunt. Tickets are priced at £10 for a team of up to 5 people (adult and up to 4 children, for example).

The treasure hunt has been organised as a fundraiser for the Mayor of Cheltenham’s Charity Appeal 2016/17. Councillor Chris Ryder, Mayor of Cheltenham said “This is a wonderful event for families and friends to enjoy. The funds raised from this event will support local charities delivering life changing services for local people which I am extremely passionate about. The more funds we can raise will mean these great charities can support even more local people.”
