Are you ready for a new 6 week challenge?
We are launching 'The Bridgwater Way Summer Treasure Hunt' on 22nd July and it will run until 1st September. It is a fun activity for children and their families to enjoy time together, hunting for virtual characters in local parks using the BetterPoints app and getting the chance to win some fabulous prizes!
A giant wave has crashed into 5 local parks leaving a trail of colourful beachy items, can you find them?
Earn BetterTickets for each item found to win great prizes, make sure to avoid Sneaky Sammy Seagull!
At the end of the challenge winners will be picked based on the number of BetterTickets they have earned during the challenge:
- GRAND PRIZE - 1 Year family membership for the National Trust worth £140
- 6 x £15 Showcase Cinema e-vouchers
- 6 x £15 National Book Token vouchers
- 6 x £15 The Entertainer e-vouchers
- 6 x £15 Pizza Hut e-vouchers

The Bridgwater Way is a project focused on helping to keep Bridgwater moving as the town goes through a period of significant growth and investment. By providing information, advice and tools people can choose the best time to travel and routes to use. It includes investment in new roads and improvements to existing roads and junctions, as well as miles of new and improved routes for pedestrians and cyclists. It also offers active travel initiatives to make getting to work or school easier and safer.
