Looking for something free to do these school holidays? MidCoast Stories will host the 'Wingham Heritage Hunt' between July 13 and 19.

Form a team of three or more, download the free Scavify scavenger hunt app and get started!

All challenges take place around Wingham's town centre. Complete the tasks all at once or over the week.

Every team that collects 480 points or more is in the running for one of a number of prizes from the Wingham Chamber of Commerce including tickets to the Wingham Akoostik Music Festival and voucher packages.

The Heritage Hunt is "sort of a launch" for the heritage markers the Wingham Chamber of Commerce has placed on heritage buildings in Wingham's town centre.

We try and do things that get the community involved in their own heritage.

"It's using some of that information in some of the questions, just to help people get to know the history of Wingham in a fun way," MidCoast Stories' Janine Roberts said.

"We try and do things that get the community involved in their own heritage."

Each team will need to download the Scavify app onto one smartphone. After creating a username and password, search for Wingham Heritage Hunt.

This will show the gameplay screen, which displays tasks, points and running score.

Tasks won't be revealed until 7am on July 13.

Entry is free, with the winner to be announced on July 20. The winner will be informed by email.
