Dorchester Super Sleuth Winners 2016

The 2016 Super Sleuth competition is officially closed and we have been absolutely delighted with the number of entries in to this year’s competition. We hope everyone who took part enjoyed it as much as we did putting together the competition and clues.

This year saw a growing number of youngsters sleuthing around Dorchester looking for the fabulous imagery of plants, animals and landmarks from around the Jurassic area and collecting stickers for their album. The feedback from parents, grandparents and the kids themselves has been wonderful! The participating shops have again found several new faces who now know they exist in town and what they have on offer too.

It seems we now have a whole new generation that knows their Dorset butterflies, plants and even a few more names of dinosaurs! We were delighted to work in partnership this year with the County Museum, Dorset Wildlife Trust, Malcolm Balmer, Jurassic Coast Trust, Butterfly conservation (Dorset) and the Town Council.

Local artist Peter Montgomery, who penned all the dinosaur images was also on hand to present each of the Super Sleuth winners with their own signed dinosaur print.

A massive congratulations to everyone who took part – with 120 clues to find this year’s competition was no mean feat.

Here are the lucky winners:

Supersleuth winners 11 years and over

1st Charlotte Cannon

2nd Alexandra Cartwright

3rd  Imogen Brown


Supersleuth winners 10 years and under

1st Eliza Stephens

2nd Harry & Monty Bratcher-Howard

Thank you to everyone else who took part in the competition over the last few weeks, including adults, kids and Dorchester’s wonderful businesses for making it such a success.

See you again next year!
