Every time we go up The Wrekin you can almost guarantee that a few days later, a new cache will be published up there. It’s happened a few times in the past now, which is really uncanny and almost if someone is watching over us (which of course they are not).
Anyway, the last time this happened we decided to leave the cache as we knew as part of the first week at Isaac’s new school the whole school goes on a walk up The Wrekin. Families are encouraged to come along too so I knew it would be a great time to bag the last cache we have to do up there.
We had a lovely walk up the hill, chatting away to lots of new parents. As we got to the summit, you could see the whole school gathered round the new Year 7 pupils cheering them and getting their photos taken. They then all set off down the hill to the waiting coaches and back to school, so myself and Mrs Bolas Heathens headed off the short distance to the cache.
I’d seen it was an unusual container and that the cache was set for someone’s 30th birthday, so was expecting a fake cake or something like that. I thus nearly passed the cache over as it was in fact something very different. I won’t say any more here as I don’t want to spoil it for future finders.
We then headed off down the hill, chatting away to more parents and drove round to the school for refreshments. As we arrived, we realised we had forgotten there was a charity event on and quite a few celebrities were taking part. Off we went to see who we could spot, which should be interesting as I never usually take any notice as to who is who on TV.
We managed to spot Chris Tarrant, Nick Hancock and Robert Powell from Casualty. There were a few other faces that looked familiar but I’ve no idea who they were.
