The Barrel Hunt

2018 Boxing Day Barrel Hunt – In aid of Essex Air Ambulance

This year the Five Bells Barrel Hunt, now in its 16th year running, saw over 170 adults, children and dogs taking part. The aim of the game is to find the hidden beer barrels on a set route around the village and bring them back to the pub to claim your prize kindly donated by our sponsors: Adnams Brewery, Winefantastic, Bookers Cash and Carry and Tidy Gardens. All competitors on their return to the pub, have some food laid on courtesy of Darran and Caroline Lingley, the owners of the Five Bells. Well done to everyone who took part and well done to those who won!
