The Armchair Treasure Hunt Club
1999 Annual Event

The 1999 Annual Event was situated in the picturesque village of Bourton-on-the-Water in the heart of the Cotswolds. The event was organized by John and Suzanne Elliott and featured a treasure hunt called The King of Toads written by club member Paul Watts. The event proved to be a great success. Three dragonflies and one silver toad were hidden in the village waiting to be found. Below are a selection of pictures that were taken on the day.

Thank you to Sandra Young and Sally Hickling for the following photos.
