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 scholars at the Little Sniffy CofE Primary School are studying averages. They’ve worked out that June is the median month, that today is the median day of the year, and most excitingly of all, that the most important moment in this portentous day is in a few minutes: lunch time!
Meanwhile @ Poppleton High Murray Merryweather seized the moment to pivot to balancing loads. Taking his classes outside, he got the Year 8s on seesaws, measuring where they had to sit on the pivot to balance. Some saw it as an end of year doss lesson, but Oli and Justin enjoyed it.
Today’s a turning point for lorry driver Ray Burns too. No more seemingly impossible reversing maneuvers with the tanker, he’s been head-hunted to join a think tank.
And the twins? Well Janus-like: Rose continues to look back at her ancestry, whilst Evan looks forward to the new season with the Chorley Wanderers: he’s joined their youth squad.

Garry Baldie used the digits he always used – and won a Godiva on the scratch cards;
Emily & Alistair (and Yan) have invited ᗡႱ & JD and Joe round for a meal. They reckon they’ve got the balance about right.
Antonín Biskup likes 1.61:1. He uses the proportions wherever he can;
Tom Bell gets excited by what he considers to be a perfect number – 362436;
And Justin thinks it’s the perfect date to go on a first date with Oli.

Gloria thought that people had gone to an awful lot of trouble for her birthday: tying bunting up across the land, holding street parties and lighting beacons.
It’s a big O birthday, but that doesn’t matter. Roger’s got a special meal planned, and he’s promised her a few days on the continent. Perfect!

Will was going to spend the day programming his new Raspberry – and when (after about a quarter of an hour) he realises he can’t do that, he’ll watch all six Star Wars films, one after another.
Justin Case’s cut some lilac to wear. He’s got a hard-boiled egg and treacle sandwiches in his packed lunch, which he’s going to eat at the cenotaph with Hugh.
ᗡႱ will be modeling his dressing gown and carrying his towel all day. He’s going to read the latest anthology of Vogon Love Poetry to JD later.
As for Ivy Newbrush, she’ll be playing Angry Birds at every opportunity.

Seeing double @ the Dew Drop Inn? They’ve got a 2 – 4 – 1 offer on during “Happy Hour”.
Michelle Biskup’s got a bump. She’s now the First Assistant Deputy to the Acting Manager (with special responsibility for French Letters).
And Evan Wood suffered a bout of crapulence, having eaten a whole bar of what he thought was chocolate. He’s definitely pro-motion.
But it’s nearing the end of the season, and things are not looking good for the Chorley Wanderers…
