The OLLIE Foundation is holding a treasure hunt around St Albans city centre


Would-be explorers, detectives and treasure hunters have a chance to shine this summer in St Albans.

Everyone is invited to join in with a family fun day of searching for clues around the city’s hotspots - teams will be pitted against each other, answering questions and collecting photos to earn points.

The organised game, called The Ultimate OLLIE Challenge, utilises smart phones and tablets to make it interactive and is raising money for St Albans suicide charity The OLLIE Foundation (One Life Lost Is Enough).

A co-founder of OLLIE, Stuart Falconer, said: “The treasure hunt is a fun filled activity full of challenges for all the family. Run around St Albans and unlock challenges and tasks, earning yourself points in the process.

“And of course, what do points make? Prizes.

“So come and join us and help The OLLIE Foundation continue to remove the stigma of suicide in our communities.”

The treasure hunt will start at the Ye Olde Fighting Cocks on Abbey Mill lane at 12pm on September 10.

Adult tickets are £10, or children’s tickets are £5 - click here to book.

Sponsors are still being sought for the hotspots around the city. For more information, contact Stuart at contactus@theolliefoundation.org

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
