Ovingdean Treasure Hunt : Sunday 27 December 2015

Please come and join  us at the Village Hall for a Treasure Hunt on Sunday 27 December. The Treasure Hunt starts at 1.30pm but the Village Club will be open as usual from 12 noon. This is a walking event, for all the family, going round the village and answering clues on what you might see.

It is an excellent way to walk off the excesses of Christmas!

Contact Russell Smith if you would like more details


Ovingdean Village Treasure Hunt


Sunday 27 December 2015


  • There are no prizes. Answer sheet available at the end
  • Work round the village either way clockwise or anti-clockwise
  • If your question sheet is yellow, go clockwise; if its pink, go anti-clockwise
  • Route is Ovingdean Road, Ainsworth Avenue, Longhill Road, Longhill Close, Ovingdean Road back to start
  • Take great care on all roads
  • Keep your eyes open and your mind alert
  • Some answers are very close and some are distant
  • Not all questions are in geographical order – you may find that a question comes up when you’re around Greenways and the answer pops up in Longhill Road
  • There may be puns, or mathematics or simple observation tests
  • If you went onto this week, these questions were all there since Christmas Eve
  • Everything is visible from the highway – no trespassing necessary
  • Have fun
