Family Jubilee Treasure Hunt


June – August

The Family Jubilee Community Treasure Hunt is based on items to be found and discovered within the Wenvoe community area. It consists of photographs and questions for your whole family to seek the answers as they wander around the community during the summer months.

The questions sheets will be available from the afternoon of Saturday 4th June at the Community Centre and additional sheets will be available from the library hub.

The closing date of the competition will be in August, so there is plenty of time during the up and coming wonderful sunny days to explore the local surroundings and complete your answers.

For 8 weeks the streets of Cardiff, Cardiff Bay, Caerphilly and Porthcawl are home to a series of intricately decorated Snoopy sculptures, each designed by local, regional and national artists , designers and illustrators – both well-known favourites and newly emerging talent .

Each sculpture is sponsored by a business or individual, celebrating the vibrancy, culture and creativity the region has to offer.
