Seafood & Sounds Oyster Trail

Family fun with the Seafood & Sounds Oyster Trail running over the weekend in partnership with Nead from Surf Tide Treasures. Its similar to a treasure hunt except you are looking for decorated oyster shells hidden throughout the Old Town, Thames Street, Market Street and the Quay. Each of the oyster shells are decorated and feature a letter which when all are collected will form a phrase.
