From Lion Matty Bungard Message In A Bottle (MIAB) officer
I have received this request from MDHQ, unfortunately I am busy.   Is there anyone in the Southminster area that could help out with a talk about MIAB.  Please let me know so I can coordinate if more than one person can attended.  Southminster Parish Council are holding a Halloween Event on Saturday 27th October 2018, 3.30pm – 6pm.
Would you have anyone available who would be willing to come to talk about MIAB.  It is a FREE community event which attracts many from the area.
As a council we would like to promote things that assist with the wellbeing of the parishioners.
Kind regards,
Joanna Jeffery
Southminster Parish Clerk/RFO

You can cycle or walk the treasure hunt round Alton Water situated between Ipswich and Manningtree, the scenic circular path with interesting wildlife to be seen along the way can be tailored to suit your needs on the day.
The cost to participate is just £5 per person and everyone completing the treasure hunt will receive a certificate.
The day will start at 10am and finish at 5pm with the treasure hunt taking about 3hours so plenty of time to come along, have a picnic, enjoy the refreshment facilities on site or even partake in a watersport.
