Hop on the buses for Lowestoft treasure hunt

FAMILIES are being urged to take part in a Lowestoft treasure hunt – on buses.

Mission: Explore Lowestoft is being launched in the town this week in a bid to encourage people to explore their local area by competing in challenges designed around the 106 and 601 bus routes.

The project aims to educate people about the town and encourage them to use sustainable transport in future.

It is part of a �6.2m Lowestoft Local Links initiative funded by the government and local councils, which will see the construction of a new pedestrian and cycle bridge at Lake Lothing and a revamp of the forecourt at the Lowestoft train station.

To take part, families need to purchase a �10 Mission:Explore day ticket from the bus driver at any bus stop along the 106 or 601 routes. In return, they will be given a mission sheet containing questions and challenges.

Alternatively, people can pick up mission sheets in advance from Lowestoft or Oulton Broad library, or the tourist information centre.

Final answers are submitted via the Mission:Explore website www.missionexplore.net/reward/lowestoft or at collection points within the tourist information centre or the library.
