Big Green Treasure Hunt Competition Launch – May 2014

On Wednesday, 21st March 2014, Bristol’s famous Floating Harbour witnessed another docks delight in the form of a water spectacular to help launch the Big Green Treasure Hunt (24th May – 22nd June 2014).

Special thanks goes to Ferryboat Lou for galvanising everybody on the water to help make the event so special, from the gorgeous weather to the Old Vic film team, it was a marvelous effort.

The Long John Silver Trust’s thanks also go to the owners and crews of the Ferryboats, safety chap, Pyronaut and Matthew, the whole of the sensational Ambling Band – featuring our Bristol Treasure Trail app designer Jon Rolfe, the poop deck trio on the Matthew, the Matthew’s gunner, flag raising Steve and the assorted pyrates who packed the quayside.

All and sundry played their part in making it a memorable occasion that showed what could be achieved with some goodwill and enthusiasm.

Huge thanks also to the Big Green Week team for giving us this opportunity and here’s hoping people will enjoy the competition (and the Floating Harbour) in their droves – the treasure hunt has been designed to promote our ethereal Treasure Island Trail.

If you fancy having a go on the treasure hunt and sampling our app, here’s some good news: –
The iPhone/iPad version of the Treasure Island Trail app has been approved by Apple on its first submission and is now available for download from the App Store!
