Steady hands were needed when eight businesses from around King’s Lynn attempted to avoid the buzzer in the final Vancouver Quarter business challenge of the year.

The mystery challenge has previously seen teams playing mini golf, having a dance off on arcade machines and tackling an army command task challenge, but the beat the buzzer competition proved to be the toughest yet.

Ward Gethin Archer topped the table, pipping Wilko to the title in a narrow final. Third space went to Ring, Associates and Studio 20a claimed fourth.

Boots, Primark, Your Local Paper and Barclays completed the list of participating teams.

Bonus points were awarded to Ring Associates for recording the quickest time, while Your Local Paper were rewarded for averaging the least penalties for tapping the wire.

Vancouver Quarter marketing and events assistant David Blackmore said: “We always enjoy coming up with our mystery challenges and it was great to see how much fun all our teams had in attempting to navigate this giant buzz wire.

“My thanks to all those who took part.

“We really hope all the businesses have enjoyed taking part and these challenges went some way to helping their staff bond and network with fellow companies in the town.”

The team with the most points over the course of the year was Studio 20a.

A donation will be made to a charity of their choice.

Ward Gethin Archer, joint champions in 2015 and 2016, claimed second place, with Boots and Wilko finishing joint third overall.
