Emma Miller, Project Manager for Living Lerwick, said “We’ve had some great feedback from the businesses that took part and noticed a lot of folk in doing the Egg Hunt. It was fine to see the adults taking part along with the bairns, and we’ve had some great prizes to give away. Thanks to all the businesses who supported the competition and everybody who joined in.”
