Thank you to all who participated in the SWAG’s Treasure Hunt. Some of your answers were very amusing and informative even if incorrect.

Much to our relief no questions proved totally elusive.

The results were extremely close. Well done everyone.

The joint winners with only one incorrect answer were the Ball family, and Donna and Clive Nicholls.

Third was Anthony Barrett

Joint Sixth were Carol and Guy Churchill, the Garnetts and Donald Taylor.

Merit prizes for Jack, Theo, and Alex.

Prizes will be winging their way.

If you would like your marked questionnaire returning please let me know.

In a comment sent to the Website, Maureen Jeffery sums up the views of those taking part:

The Treasure Hunt has been brilliant – even though we already realise we’ve got at least two wrong!
We’ve seen so many people wandering around clutching their question forms and peering at other people’s houses and gardens.
It’s been great to do – a huge thank you to SWAGs for all the work involved in creating the questions, printing off all the copies and so on.
But oh, I so wish we’d walked just a bit further along Helmdon Road! We’ve created a new, but totally wrong answer for the want of a twenty yard stroll!

And finally, here are the quiz masters (and well may they smile!)
