No, you CAN’T have our answers!*
(With thanks to ‘Chichester Mum‘ for the words)
“The Family Food Festival Treasure Hunt is a marvellous idea from Arundel’s Xtraordinary Xperiences. A sheet of devious, Food Festival-based treasure hunt questions can be picked up from The Book Ferret for a fiver, and families can spend a couple of hours walking round town, browsing for the answers (and visiting the local shops in the process) while little Jenny/Jonny are kept busy. At least a couple of hours of occupied shopping - and there’s the chance of a prize at the end of it!
I tried it out with my own ‘little Jenny’ (10), and a friend with her two in tow (aged 6 and 4). Neither of us are from Arundel. On the way through the hunt, we had a really engaging time talking to local shopkeepers, finding out things about the town we didn’t know before, and tasting the odd free sample here and there. Combined with the Footsteps of Food trail, it’s a great way to get to know Arundel and what it has to offer. Good on you, Food Festival organisers for thinking of those of us with kids! Many wouldn’t have. They all seemed to be having a blast. We’ll all be back on Saturday for the Family Food Day”
