Well The day has arrived and this is my last Blog on the NTQ Website. It has been a pleasure to do this for all these years. I would like to say a big thanks to all my readers down the years. But because of circumstances beyond my control the site will end at the end of December. So any of the past ones you want to read they will all be here until then.

 

In the meantime we have a quest to report

 

On this sunny Bank Holiday Sunday Sophie Little was once again, out to retain the trophy and get another win under her belt. Pilot Perrott was her cohort and mentor, for this mornings antics around the county. David Whiteley was pondering about his missed chance, of doing some surfing, but needs must and we needed him, to rustle the maps and give directions. Questmaster had all of his knowledge funneled into writing this weeks clues. We had no Glam this week. We started the proceedings parked in Horsham St Faith and got to the treasure at Bungay cricket club.
