Lerwick town centre businesses are getting into the Easter spirit with an Easter Egg hunt which is open to folk of all ages to join in.

28 shops and businesses are taking part in the Egg Hunt, which invites participants to find numbered eggs in each location before returning a completed entry form to collect a free chocolate egg from Mirrie Dancers Chocolatier.

There are some fantastic prize packages on offer, donated by some of the businesses taking part, with three prizes in each age category – under 16 and over 16. The winners will be chosen from the correct entries submitted by 5pm on Saturday 7th April and the winners announced on Monday 9th April.

Prizes on offer are:

First place (u16): Blu ray player, from George Robertson Ltd

Second place (u16): A scrumptious handmade Easter Egg from Mirrie Dancers and a light up letter from The Peerie Shop.

Third place (u16): Easter Egg Hunt book from the Shetland Times Bookshop, and a bonny patterned Buff by Outdoor4kids

First place (16+): A beautiful silver galley pendant by Aurora, and a Shaun & Iwan ‘Fire Awa’ CD donated by High Level Music.

Second place (16+): Delicious afternoon tea for two at Aald Harbour Tearooms (£30 voucher).

Third place (16+): A handy re-usable bag and cosy socks, donated by Smith and Robertsons and a patterned (adult) buff from Outdoor4kids.

Entry forms can be collected from The Shetland Times Bookshop, The Camera Centre, Mirrie Dancers, or downloaded from the website here. Find all 28 numbered eggs – creatively decorated by the bairns at Peerie Foxes Day Care – and hand in the form to Mirrie Dancers to collect a mini chocolate egg.

Joint project manager from Living Lerwick, Emma Miller, said: “The prize packages that the local businesses have put together for this competition are amazing and showcase some of the great products and services on offer. We would encourage folk of all ages to get out and about in the town centre and hunt for the eggs for a chance to win; this isn’t just for the bairns! It’s a great way to remind folk just how much is available locally.”
