Spending time, and money, in Lerwick town centre has paid off for two local winners.

Taylor Sherwood, 6, from Lerwick spent time with family and friends enjoying the Viking January window trail. She successfully found all 17 past Jarl Squad suits and identified the year and Jarl. Leann Laurenson from Begg Shoes picked Taylor at random from all the entries.

Taylor received Viking books and a gift token for the Shetland Times Bookshop while visiting Harald the Viking at Harrison Square. The talking Viking trail continues until 19th February, with both Vikings and Galleys at various locations looking to chat by text with town centre visitors.

The first of the monthly ‘Spend at da Street’ draws was carried out on the last Friday of January – and will be continued during the year. Marlene Sim from Lerwick was chosen as the winner and selected the Peerie Shop to spend her £50 token.

There are 43 shops, cafes, restaurants and even nursery businesses in town where customers can collect stamps for every £20 spent to be entered into the monthly draw. Remember to ask for your card when you shop local!

Details of participating businesses are on theLiving Lerwick website business directory.
