Childrens' Reading Town Meal Treasure Hunt

Great Vegetable HuntDuring the event children can take part in a Treasure Hunt. Look out for the table in the childrens' activity area to pick up your entry sheet. Many of the stalls will be displaying a letter. All you have to do is find the letter and write it on your sheet. You then need to unscramble the letters to make a sentence. Each completed entry will receive a certificate and a prize.
