Street Hunt St Helens
What is Street Hunt St Helens? Street Hunt is a kind of visual crossword puzzle, a mass participation treasure hunt of St Helens road names that you can do with all the family and be in with the chance of winning up to £6,000!
A poem has been written with words from St Helens road names. A book of photographs shows the street signs and their surroundings but with the names removed. You have to work out what the streets are using the emerging story of the poem to help you.
The first person to submit a correctly completed book with all the right answers wins. The more people that play the game and join Street Hunt, the bigger the prize! There’s a guaranteed minimum prize of £1,000 and a maximum of £6,000 if all the books are sold.
