New Year's Day Treasure Hunt

The Annual New Year's Day Treasure Hunt, held in Mytholmroyd has raised a total of £147.36 in aid of The Fire Fighters Charity.

A total of 40 families entered the treasure hunt, a healthy increase on last years numbers and fun was had by all. The Hunt entailed a nice scenic walk around the countryside of Mytholmroyd with clues spread throughout for families to solve.

Billy Painter, who also organised the event last year commented, “I’m delighted with the amount of interest it has generated in the local community and the number of people who came to take part” 

“It was nice to see many familiar faces from last year enjoying the walk again and to make a financial contribution to a good cause like The Fire Fighters Charity” said Painter.

The Treasure Hunt (A Route) was won by the ‘Batty Walkers’ who scored 29 points out of a possible 31. Second place went to the ‘Mawby Family’ with 28 points, whilst ‘Sally + Co’ and ‘A Leah’ occupied third place with a total of 27 points. The winner of the Treasure Hunt (B Route) was ‘D. Pratt’ with a total of 21 point out of a possible 23. 

Details of the Summer 2011 Treasure Hunt will be released in the coming months.
