Living Lerwick ran a competition last year to design a town centre mascot, and were looking for a character which represented the area. The standard of entries was excellent and Directors had a hard decision picking a winner.
Maunsie the Market Cross, designed by Stephen was chosen as the winner as it was felt the Market Cross is such a recognisable symbol of the town centre. Maunsie will be used in promotional campaigns this year, with a focus on shopping local and the benefits this brings to the local community, economy and environment.
Stephen was also presented with vouchers for The Camera Centre and R W Bayes, having chosen these shops to spend his £100 prize in.
