2016 has started with a piece of luck for The Corbett family of Newport with winning the £100 cash prize for Newport Business Association’s Treasure Trail. NBA treasurer Simon Randall from Love Running presented the prize last week. Mr Corbett runs a Cub Scout troup in Newport and the Cubs as group tackled the trail one evening. They didn’t manage to complete the task as some of the clues were a bit tricky, but not to be defeated the rest of the family went out and nailed the outstanding questions, entered the competition and won. Moving to the island 3 years ago they were not familiar with some of the areas of the town where the trail took them and discovered some of the tucked away shops and cafes.
“Thank you so much we are hoping to put money towards a new family television. We all thoroughly enjoyed doing the treasure trail learning Newport history along the way. Looking forward to this year’s trail so we can find out more interesting facts.”
