The Heswall Society’s new Family Treasure Hunt hopes to help families enjoy the village, and bring a fresh view to this historic community. It is particularly designed to appeal to children of primary school age.

The Hunt, which takes around an hour, leads participants through the village, noting points of interest and giving little nuggets of knowledge concerning its history. There are two play areas on the route, in addition to several cafes. The ‘treasure’ is the satisfaction of having enjoyed and completed the walk, having learnt a bit more about the village and its history.

Freely available to everyone, Treasure Hunt booklets can be requested by emailing events@theheswallsociety.org.uk or downloaded from the Heswall Society website www.theheswallsociety.org.uk. Answers to the quiz questions can also be found on the Society’s website and downloaded.

Chairman Steve Anderson said “We hope that everyone will enjoy the Hunt, seeing details around the village which they may not have noticed before.”
