Spring into action with the Bridgwater Way Treasure Hunt

Put a spring in your step at The Bridgwater Way (TBW) Treasure Hunt on Saturday 26 April at Blake Gardens.

The family-friendly fun day out is open to all and free to take part. Just follow the clues and answer the questions to complete the Treasure Hunt route. Then sit back and relax to live music from 12 noon ready for the prize giving ceremony at 1.45pm when the individuals or groups with the most correct answers will be announced and presented with prizes.

Blake Gardens are in one of the areas where The Bridgwater Way routes will be making walking and cycling safer. The event will be a great opportunity for people to find out more about the exciting project, as well as benefit from the free bike repairs provided by Dr Bike.

There’s no need to book for the Treasure Hunt, just come along on the day and collect an entry form from Blake Gardens Bandstand between 10am and 1pm. Fingers are crossed for a sunny spring day but the Treasure Hunt will go ahead whatever the weather.

Councillor Harvey Siggs, Somerset County Council Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, said: “This promises to be a fun day and I hope it attracts plenty of families to enjoy the hunt, and while they’re at it learn a bit more about The Bridgwater Way and its plans to transform transport in the town.

“As well as the Treasure Hunt, there’ll be the chance to find out about other free TBW opportunities; Dr Bike training courses, cycle loan scheme and Sky Ride Local guided rides in and around the town.”

The Treasure Hunt is one of many planned events by The Bridgwater Way project, funded by the Department for Transport. The initiative aims to transform travel in the town, making it easier and safer to walk or cycle.

As well as developing 6.5 miles of new or improved cycle paths, TBW will work with residents, businesses and schools to promote safer travel, tackle congestion, and encourage fit and healthy lifestyles. The project is being delivered through a partnership of Somerset County Council, Sustrans and Sedgemoor District Council.
