Business owners in Richmond have created great displays in their windows for the annual window dressing competition. Follow the trail, solve the clues and return your answers for the chance to win a Town Ticket for the family.
Over the Easter school holidays pick up a leaflet in any of the businesses displaying the Easter Window competition poster and follow the clues to work out the shops and offices taking part in this fun Easter competition.
The clues can also be found at www.originalrichmond.co.uk - click on ‘Events’ to download the leaflet.
Correct entries will be entered into a prize draw and the lucky winner will win a Richmond Town Ticket for a family, which gives admission to 4 of Richmond’s attractions plus discounts in various local businesses. Family Ticket price is usually £36.50.
Marcia McLuckie, Chair of the Original Richmond Business and Tourism Association (ORBTA) explained, “The Business and Tourism Association runs this competition every Easter. It really makes business owners think about their windows and how they advertise their offering to shoppers in Richmond. It is also a fun trail for adults and children to follow in town at Easter and it makes people really look closely at the windows”.
Marcia added, “Richmond has a really good feel. We have just had the tremendous publicity from a programme about the town on BBC2’s Britain In Bloom series and we were shortlisted last year in the Great British High Street Awards. Three businesses have just relocated to bigger premises – Neeps and Tatties, Granny’s Kitchen and Grey’s Interiors - and I see that one of those recently vacated shops has already been re-let. There are many interesting, individually owned shops to enjoy in Richmond”.
The competition is open to all over the Easter holidays. Leaflets are available from participating businesses and through ORBTA’s website - www.origialrichmond.co.uk
