Young people urged to ‘locate the logos’ to win a prize

Lisa Wilson and Jenifer Walker from Forres High Street shop Villagegreenery are supporting Piping At Forres with its locate the logos contest.

YOUNG people are being encouraged to hit the High Street to “locate the logos” in a competition being run by organisers of Piping At Forres.

Twelve Forres businesses have signed up to the challenge in which people have to search for the Piping At Forres and Year of Young People logos to be in with a chance of winning a prize.

The competition will officially launch on June 1 and young people up to the age of 18 will have two weeks to find all the logos.

Helping to co-ordinate the competition is Jenifer Walker from High Street shop Villagegreenery.

She said it was a fun initiative which will help bring people onto the High Street: “Villagegreenery are delighted to be involved with this project, we all need to work together to promote our local High Street and at the same time support the young in the community. Anything that brings families into the town is an asset.”

Piping At Forres which is celebrating Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018, has also coincided the competition to take place alongside Scottish Week which takes place from June 2 to 10.

Ainsley James who is Piping At Forres’ Year of Young People co-ordinator added: “This is going to be a lot of fun and we thought that by coinciding it with Scottish Week and the Toun Mercat, people were more likely to get involved. The start of June is also the real run up to Piping At Forres which takes place on June 30th so we hoped the activity might create a bit of buzz and excitement for the event which will be the last to take place in Forres.”

The prize is a family ticket (2 adults, 2 youths aged 12-17) to Piping At Forres worth £32 and a cinema voucher worth £50.
