Do you want to win an iPad Mini? Do you know your lords-a-leaping from your ladies-dancing? Take your little treasures to the Maltings Shopping Centre’s Twelve Days of Christmas treasure hunt to be in with a chance of picking up this prize.

This festive competition launched on Saturday and is easy to enter: Collect a treasure hunt leaflet from the Maltings’ lifts on the ground and first floor and wander around the shopping centre and find the characters from the Twelve Days of Christmas song.

Once you’ve found them, fill in the details and post it into the Christmas post box by the library by December 24.

Centre manager Phil Corrigan said: “We wanted to do something that would be fun for the kids of all ages. The competition is very visual and some of the characters are in quite quirky locations, I think everyone will have great fun hunting for them.”

The lucky winner will be announced on Monday, January 7.

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.
