The treasure hunt went well…

August 3, 2014 admin General Gossip

When Wendy screamed that she’d lost her false teeth (I’m sorry, Teesh), the Punters thought it was a well wicked treasure hunt. Imagine their horror when they found out what the prize was, the poor child who found those teeth will be mentally scarred for life!
