What 3 Words competition – Welwyn Hatfield

8 Oct 2019
  • The competition is running as part of Rural Crime Week.

  • It is being run to help increase awareness of What 3 Words.

  • The app could help save valuable time during an emergency.

As part of Rural Crime Week 2019 (October 6-13), the Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) is running a competition to help promote the What 3 Words service.

What 3 Words is an app which helps people to pinpoint their exact whereabouts in an area which may be difficult to describe, such as a remote location.

The free app divides the world into 3m x 3m squares, each with a unique three-word address. In an emergency, when giving your accurate location is crucial, this three-word address could be the easiest way to communicate exactly where help is needed, so emergency services can find you quickly.

To help show how the app works, the SNT is running a competition where people will have the chance to win prizes including an Amazon voucher and What 3 Words merchandise.

To take part you need to:

  • Work out the 12 local locations from the clues given below.
  • Answer the question associated with that location.
  • Use the What 3 Words app to work out the three word address of the exact location. One of the words has already been given to you in bold.

All answers should be emailed to PCSO Samantha Griffin by the closing date of Thursday 31 October. The winner will then be chosen at random.

Good luck!
