Fakenham rotary club is putting people’s detective skills to the test with a car treasure hunt.

Taking place on July 24 at 1pm, the charity family treasure hunt will start at the Gallows Sports Centre.

Through a mixture of cryptic clues and anagrams, competitors will be led to a village within seven miles of Fakenham.

The clues to the locations are in a random order so people are encouraged to work out the places before heading off as travelling the shortest distance will benefit the team.

They stressed that this is not a race, and there is no prize for being back first.

For bonus points, there is a list of things to find or tasks to be done, and photographic evidence is required to confirm these have been completed. There is also a scavenger hunt for children.

The entry fee is £5 per person.
