The tardis has found a permanent home.

Since February, as part of the JCI Hospital Gala,  a replica of the police call box from Doctor Who has been appearing all over the North Okanagan.

“Project Blue Box was one of the items auctioned off in April at the gala and it raised $1,000,” said Wil Munton, who developed the tardis.

“Oddly enough, the Blue Box was won by a local doctor.”

But the project was also part of a seven-month treasure hunt.

With the support of Century 21 and the Best Western Vernon Lodge, contestants searched for the Blue Box’s key.

Each appearance of the Blue Box held a clue as to where the key might be found.

The mystery was solved by Nikki Zak, Charlotte Grigg and Jan Mol.

The clue to the solution was on the door of the Blue Box, a St. John Ambulance crest that was altered at each of the locations the Blue Box was at.

All three deduced that the key’s location must be the St. John Ambulance building in Vernon.

The three correct puzzle solvers were then invited to draw for the Best Western prize. Mol drew the winning envelope.
