The Dennistoun Treasure hunt is back! It’s an event that has taken place yearly since 2009, firstly hosted by Dennistoun Community Together (DCT), and then by Dennistoun Community Council (DCC) since 2011.

Every primary school child in Dennistoun has received an entry form from their teacher inviting them to identify the Moshi Monster in the window displays of various local participating local shops and businesses from Tuesday September 18th, until the morning of Wednesday 26th. Once completed, the entry forms are submitted back to their teacher, ready for collection by DCC on Thursday September 27th.

Prior to the start of the Treasure Hunt, some primary school classes had contributed various pieces of artwork based on a theme of sport, in recognition of the recent Olympic and Paralympic games, and the forthcoming Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.  A winning design by a Haghill Park Primary P7 pupil was chosen as the basis for the certificate which every child taking part will receive.

Prizes will also be awarded to the eagle-eyed pupils with the most correct answers on their entry form. There will be two prizes for each school: a £25 WHSmith voucher to the boy and the girl with the most correct answers from their school. If there is more than one sheet with all the answers right, the winners will be based on the tie-breaker, chosen by Dennistoun Community Council.

We hope that everyone taking part has fun hunting for the Monsters!

Thanks again to the local businesses for their co-operation with hosting the Monsters:

  • Duke Street: Keys Galore, Food & Fodder, Visual Impact, Joyce@Beverley’s, Florristers, Memories, Tronic IT, Little Bratz, Flower Fusion, Whitehill Dental Care, The Jewellery Box, CMF Hobbies, Rroc Shooz, and Hair By Linda.
  • Hillfoot Street: Robert Dick, and The Repairman.
  • Alexandra Parade: Wm Blair, Eye Candy, Hardware Hut.

Additional copies of the entry form can be downloaded here (PDF).  Guidance notes given to teachers can be downloaded here (PDF).

Edit: Please note that the Monsters will not have been delivered to Eye Candy or Hair By Linda until the afternoon of Wednesday 19th September.  Whitehill Dental Care is listed as P. Toland Dentist on the entry form – they are to be treated as one and the same for the purposes of this Treasure Hunt.

Update – 24th Sep: Treasure Hunt forms with the Eye Candy Moshi left blank will be accepted due to a period of closure when the Monster was not visibly on display.
