2016 St Martins Church Treasure Hunt
Derek Webb & Christina Maton organised an interesting route for the 2016 Thompson Church Treasure Hunt which started at St Martins Church 2:30pm on Sunday 31st July, the instructions this year were simple turn right, turn left, instead of the usual Marked Map, also the clues were situated en-route, the 35-mile route took in some 12 villages such as, Saham Toney, Daffy Green, Cransworth, Hingham and Stow Bedon, finishing back after 3 hours at St Martins for refreshments. The results were very close, as two crews tied for 1st place on 315 points from a total of 350. The result was decided by a tie-break question tie - Name the actors who played the Magnificent Seven, and who are still alive today.
The Top Five results were as follows:
1st Irene Smith, Jo Spence, Jo Connolly 315 pts
2nd John & Ann Scott, & Lynn 315 pts
3rd Laine Skinner , Pam & Mark 300 pts
4th Phillipa Edmunds, Derek , Pam & Terry 285 pts
5th Henry & Cath Hardiment & Ian Silvi 250 pts
The next Treasure Hunt will be run in April 2017.

Wispire have now commissioned and are offering a wireless broadband service to users in the village. The service is much faster than the wired service offered by BT and others. Information suggests that you can use the faster broadband vouchers to offset setup costs. The service is not currently available in the whole village as boosters are needed to reach some areas, but the more people expressing an interest in joining the service the sooner boosters are likely to be available. Either click the link below for contact information or contact the Parish Clerk who will pass your details on.
