This is the 366th and last post from press Here. It takes the form of a treasure hunt through the Snoddings and Sniffy, Poppleton and Chorley.
There are 12 questions. Each question refers to a story. Collect the first letter from each answer to build a password, and then find the next question at that story.
The final question gives you a link to follow.
Thank you for reading the blog over the year. I hope it made you smile from time to time. If you’ve only just found it, it might make more sense if you start from the beginning.

The Shakespeare Amateur Dramatics Society are delighted to present a series of four plays:
The comedy of errors
Much ado about nothing
Romeo & Juliet
All’s well that ends well
Bring a rug, a picnic and a bottle of Lord Rupert’s finest, and enjoy some Shakespeare in the grounds of the Castle this Summer.

Friday afternoon, and the musicians from the Poppleton Orchestra have joined forces with the Poppleton Firemen to perform @ the bandstand in the park.
They presented a formal selection of music:
Symphony No.59 in A ‘Fire’ – Joseph Haydn
Fire of eternal glory – Dmitri Shostakovich
Firebird – Igor Stravinsky
But the firemen just had to play their signature tune as an encore.

Following Justin Case’s recent find, Arky-ologists from the university have been down on the banks of the Bredy with their buckets and spades,
building sand castles sifting sand.
You wouldn’t believe the things they found:
- and the bones of a cow. :/
Looks like the Moores are having a Barbie.

Liz Bannister wanted to bake a Victoria Sponge for tea. She didn’t have all the ingredients though, so she sent Graeme to the Farmers’ Market with a shopping list:
Well, for some reason Ella Miller wasn’t there, so he couldn’t get the flour.
Phil didn’t have any eggs left either.
And so, in the best traditions of the professional supermarket shopper, he substituted a packet of Roger Moore’s biscuits for the flour, and a carton of Minnie Driver’s cream cheese for the eggs.
He’d got everything else though, so that was good. He was sure Liz would be pleased too.

Mrs. M.P. Robinson demonstrated her supreme command of the whistle again earlier today @ the Little Sniffy CofE Primary School’s Sports Day. School Secretary, Gloria Moore née Devine relegated, as usual, to the position of impartial scorer.
A handsome crowd came in their finest to offer support and vocal encouragement to their little darlings, except for Rosie Barrieclough, who arrived wearing an extra-large T-shirt and leggings – thereby bagging first prize in the Sack Race.
Rather unfairly, in many observer’s eyes, Noah Wan entered his limb-deficient whippet for the 3 Legged Race, but justice was seen to be done as Thunder espied a rabbit, and chased that instead. In the end, Ella Miller and the vicar came first. Together.
The Egg & Spoon Race was, as usual, owned by Cook Cakes, who can whip up a custard faster than anyone.
And everyone participated in the backward running race, .ɘƨɿɘvɘɿ ni ǫniʜƚ ɘloʜw ɘʜƚ nɒɿ-ɘɿ bnɒ
