We did have planned a great season of events for our members and supporters for this year but sadly Covid-19 put paid to our plans.
Instead, we have been working hard to create virtual events to entertain you and our first is a Virtual Treasure Hunt.
Virtual Treasure Hunt 2nd May
raising funds for Air Ambulance Kent, Surrey & Sussex
This fun treasure hunt is open to all ages and has a car theme.
Starting on Saturday 2nd May, participants have a week to complete the task and the winners will be announced on 10th May.
It raises funds for Kent, Surrey, and Sussex (KSS) Helicopter Rescue Emergency Campaign for Covid-19.
KSS is appealing for your help to ensure they can continue providing life-saving care to those in urgent need.
At Air Ambulance Kent Surrey Sussex (KSS), like everyone, is facing unprecedented challenges. Never before have they had to call on your support with this urgency as they launch our Coronavirus Emergency Appeal.
Their priority remains responding to the sickest or critically injured across our regions in their hour of need. In addition to continuing their life saving, specialist emergency service, they have now been called to action to support the NHS in the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic.
Working alongside the South East Coast Ambulance Service and the wider NHS, KSS will make the best use of existing resources – their state of the art helicopters, response vehicles and equipment – and the outstanding expertise of medics and crew to contribute to this national effort by supporting the transfer of critically ill Coronavirus patients across our regions, as and when required.
They are investing in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), infection protection controls, and specialist medical equipment to support our service delivery. It is their utmost priority to protect the team, ensuring they have the necessary resources and equipment to stay safe and save as many lives as possible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
£15 could buy 7 bottles of alcohol hand gel offering protection from the virus.
£35 could pay for 200 surgical masks that protect the crew.
£75 could buy 50 ventilator filters that protect the ventilator.
To donate visit Air Ambulance Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

How to take part
The answers can be found on google maps by following the link below and keeping to the blue map route (shown above).
Please zoom out of the map find the start at Westerham Brewery.
To find the clues you will need to use:
a. Road view - the aerial view of the roads.
b. Street view (SV) - Using the little street view yellow man (bottom right) and dragging him onto the road to get a street view. If you can’t get the man to rest on the road it means that road hasn’t been photographed by the Google camera or you may need to revert to the map view or move further down the road to get him to latch on.
Where questions use Street view (yellow man) it will be indicated by (SV)
To input, your answers just follow this link to google sheets.
Oh and don't forget to let us know what car you would have driven in and your dream drive by placing a photo on our Facebook page.
Thank you to our hunt test drivers:

The street view man can picked up and dragged to your road giving you a view similar to that below. You can split the view to see the aerial and street view.
What car would you drive?
If I could I'd drive Sumini I'd take it on a treasure hunt to give me a high rise clue-spotting advantage.
