Hundreds of youngsters enjoyed Clitheroe Castle Museum’s treasure hunt to find 22 hidden minibeasties.
And the winner was seven year–old Curtis Levens, a visitor from Wigan, whose name was picked from more than 200 entries to win a goodie bag full of items from the museum shop and a winner’s certificate.
Rachel Jackson, Lancashire County Council’s museum manager at Clitheroe Castle, said: “Searching for the minibeasties hidden within the museum is a popular activity for families with children.
“It’s also a great way to learn about Clitheroe Castle itself and the local history of the area. The children are having fun and learning at the same time.”
Janette Haymes, Curtis’s great-grandmother, said: “We were on holiday in the area and went to visit Clitheroe Castle for a day out. Curtis and his brother and sister loved searching around to try to find the minibeasties.”
Admission to the museum is £4.10 for adults, £3.05 concessions, accompanied children free. For information phone 01200 424568 or visit www.lancashire.gov.uk/museums
