St George’s Launton Quest

We know that many people are looking for interesting local events and we are pleased to invite you to compete in Launton’s very own St George’s quest. We’d love as many people as possible to join in by making a display featuring a dragon and / or a knight and displaying it outside their home between Friday 23rd April and Monday 3rd May.

This event will run from 10am Friday 23rd April 2021 to 8pm Monday 3rd May 2021. Planning has been completed around government guidelines and we hope to bring some Springtime joy to our special village.

The quest map will be in April’s Launton Lines and will also be here on the website from 1st April. As you undertake the quest you will find clues to help you answer a question. This question will be available on the website and the JustGiving page. If you enjoy the quest, then please consider making a donation which will be split between St Mary’s Church and Bicester Refugee Support Group. Further details of how to do this will be in April’s Launton Lines and here on the website from 1st April.

Theme

We’re celebrating St George’s Day and Spring time by inviting you all to create a display featuring a dragon and/or a knight. You might want to use your scarecrow making skills to make a knight or dragon to stand outside your house, or to use your window decorating skills to create a window display or something else! Please feel free to be creative and imaginative.
