Q: Do I have to enter in a team?

A: No, we’ll match you to a table of 8 if you come alone. Don’t worry there will be gin to talk about!

Q: I have a group fewer than 8 people can we be together?

A: Yes, we’ll try and sit groups of less than 8 together if at all possible.

Q: Are all the questions about gin?

A: There will be a gin theme but questions might be on anything tenuously related…

Q: Why is the pre-school raising money?

A: The amount of money we get from government funded ‘free’ childcare hours doesn’t cover the full cost of providing that care so we have to fundraise to keep the pre-school sustainable. We hope to do this with fun and community enhancing events like this one!

Create, Hide & Hunt Painted Pebbles in Elsworth

Create your own pebble to hide round the village at home or just join the hunt for pebbles in Elsworth. You can post a photo of your pebble and any you find to our Facebook page Elsworth Rocks

Please don't hide pebbles on farmland or on sports fields, happy hunting!

If you find a pebble, photograph it, post it on Facebook if you'd like then hide it again.

How to create your own pebble:

1. Get a pebble

2. Paint your pebble (we used acrylic paint)

3. Waterproof your pebble (we used this gloss spray)

4. Write Elsworth Rocks in permanent marker on the back

5. Hide your rock

An internet search will give you lots of other ideas for paint types, waterproofing and inspiration of what to paint!
