Are you ready for a new 6-week challenge?

We have got a great challenge for you over the school holidays this summer. It will take place between 29th July and 8th September.  Take a stroll with your children using the BetterPoints app to find lots of virtual treasure in order to win some fantastic prizes. 

The Storyline...

A giant wave has crashed into 5 local parks leaving a trail of colourful beachy items, can you find them all?
Earn BetterTickets for each item found to win great prizes, make sure to avoid Sneaky Sammy Seagull

Please note: This programme works most effectively with active tracking. If you are currently using automatic tracking, please ensure to manually click the play button and start a walk. When you are finished, press 'complete.'

Participating parks:


Heartsease Recreation Ground

Jubilee Park

Sloughbottom Park

Great Yarmouth and Gorleston

St George's Park

Upper Esplanade, Gorleston Cliffs 

As you walk around these parks as a family you can discover the virtual treasure which will earn you special BetterTickets.  Each ticket earned will give you one entry into our prize draws.

 We're giving away up to £500 worth of prizes at the end of the treasure hunt, as follows:

  • 6 x £15 Showcase Cinema Giftcards

The virtual treasure will pop up from 29th July, but in the meantime why not take a walk in any of your local parks with your family? You can earn BetterPoints  for traveling within the Pushing Ahead rewards zone. Just check your programmes area to see which rewards are available to you.
