Children in Rosemount are being invited to join in a giant treasure hunt today across 35 shops in the area.
Pupils from Rosemount’s schools will have to find a letter in each shop window to piece together a phrase to win an Easter egg and a £20 voucher for a participating store.The winner will be drawn at random from the correct entries.
The hunt has been organised by community group Growing Rosemount, a collective of shop owners and members of the public who regularly organise events in the area.
Sally Simpson of Growing Rosemount said: “This will be heaps of fun for the kids. It’s always great to see people out and about together visiting all of Rosemount’s shops.
“It’s a bit more difficult this year as we’ve had more shops joining in so we’ve had to find a bigger phrase!”
It is hoped that the treasure hunt will re-invigorate the area’s community spirit after recent news that Rosemount Adult learning and community centre was to close.
Owner of Cloudy Blue craft shop Linda Singer said: “It’s a great opportunity for children and families to have a good look round the area. It will also give our shops a chance to show people what we’re all about.”
Over 1000 entry forms have been sent to the shops and schools of Rosemount and participants have until the 18th of April to hand them in.
The winner will be drawn on Tuesday the 19th.
