The Big Hoot App Prize
132 people managed to get round to all 82 owls across the region and answer their questions correctly. They all went into a draw to win the luxury pampering break in and around the World Heritage city.
The draw was made at the Owls Hoot Farewell weekend by Bath's Olympic gold medallist Amy Williams MBE, pictured here with Julia, one of the runners up, who won an Owls of Bath poster.
The overall winner of the fabulous prizes was the Siveter family from East Preston, West Sussex. Congratulations!
Kevin, Marita and 9 year old daughter Julia came to Bath for a short break in July and managed to track down 81 of the 82 owls, with the exception of IsamBIRD Kingdom BrunOWL who was nesting at Paddington Station at the time. The following month they drove from East Sussex to Swindon where IsamBIRD was now perched, where they found him perched in the waiting room and finally completed the trail.
On hearing the news that they had won the Big Hoot App prize, Marika said "I can't believe it. We never win anything! Bath is one of my favourite cities in the world. It reminds me of Rome where I'm from. I always have a lovely time when I come to Bath and I'm so excited to take up all these amazing prizes. Thank you so much. It's so exciting!"
They win a fabulous mega-prize of 2-nights in the boutique Abbey Hotel; Exclusive Prosecco Package in the thermal Cross Bath; a Taste of Bath hamper, a goodie bag of Owls of Bath merchandise, including colouring books, posters and mugs; a night's dinner B&B at the 16th century Swan Hotel in nearby historic Bradford on Avon and a round of golf for four at the award-winning Cumberwell Park - home to real Little Owls!
