Not too out of date, in fact nothing really wrong with it but all the barbers we came across were far too trendy and had no pictures at all!
A photo of a team member with a uniformed Police Officer or Fireman
Just to be on the safe side we had a fireman, policeman and a PCSO with car and a very new shiny fire engine!
This, however is thinking outside the box!
A piece of Michael Jackson memorabilia - the spare glove from the car wasn't allowed!
A picture of a team member riding an automated kiddie ride
Didn't have time to go round properly!
A paper placemat, takeout menu, or matches from any Chinese restaurant
Something (not the deodorant) that's strong enough for a man, yet made for a woman - bit of a cryptic one this, we went for a Yorkie Bar (well done Hubby for thinking of that) others went for the Bounty kitchen roll!
Photo of ALL team members group-hugging in front of Kennedy Gardens Fountain
Can't find our team photo, but this team were closer to the fountain than we were!The lyrics to the 2nd verse of Slade's So here it is Merry Christmas - we arrived at the record shop in Hitchin to find it is no longer a record shop! As I said this out loud (thinking outside my head again) the shop owner heard me and asked what it was we were looking for. When we explained we were doing a charity scavenger hunt he very kindly helped out by Googling the words and printing them off for us!
A car wash receipt from today
A Brownies, Beavers, Guides or Scout badge - we didn't have time to get home to raid my collection!
A photo depicting one team member, one total stranger, and a live animal
A photo of the entire team on Leys Avenue
The business card of a person not known to members of the group
A current Argos catalogue - not difficult once you remember where Argos is!
A real four-leaf clover
Trust me there is a 4 leaf clover in there somewhere! At least we didn't try and glue one together - you know who you are!
A photo of all team members in front of a house whose number is 3
One of those little individually wrapped soaps from a hotel or motel
An oak leaf
Something shaped like an egg that is not an egg
A piece of hideous wallpaper
A student railcard
A photo of a team member leaning on a conveyor belt
by the time we took our picture we think most of the other teams had run into the same supermarket as we were getting some rather strange looks!
Possibly even the same conveyor belt!
Aha, this team bucked the trend and went for a different supermarket!
A Cadburys Creme Egg - A Kinder Egg did not count but it was all we had!
A jar of water from the River Hiz (with proof of its origin)
A disposable coffee cup
A free promotional pen (must have company's info on it).
A 1980 coin (any denomination).
The phone number of the phone booth opposite Londis. Couldn't even see the phone box!
How many swings are at Arlesey Park / Rec? - a complete guess as we were running out of time, but we got it right!
What take-away is open latest on Saturday nights in Arlesey? - another guess for same reason but again it was right!
A cocktail umbrella.
A photo of someone walking their dog.
Scared the life out of this lovely lady as she was getting her dogs out of her car, you see she was also at Kennedy Gardens and could also take our photo for one of the other tasks!
Maximum Possible Score
I think we ended up with a score of about 280 (we didn't win) which wasn't bad and we were only 3 minutes late back! We had a brilliant afternoon and it was so nice that everyone who helped, or rather was pounced upon to take a picture or pose for one was very kind and helpful and I hope maybe they walked away with a little smile, maybe wondering what those mad people were going to have to find next!
This was so much fun and it did remind me of the scavenger hunts we did with scouts, there was a huge one we used to do, I think it may have been over a weekend but it did involve some rather large finds. like fire trucks in real life not just a photo of!
Anyway, that was last weekend. I have to collect all my bits and bobs together for market for this weekend now, off to Welwyn Garden tomorrow.
Take care all
