AN EASTER egg hunt in Leamington is hoping to introduce treasure hunters to new businesses.
BID Leamington has organised two trails around the town centre where colourful eggs will be displayed in 50 shop windows until Wednesday April 28
There are two ‘golden eggs’ to be found, one on each route. Once found, the treasure hunters have to jot down the name of the shop onto the entry form to be entered into a grand prize draw to be in with a chance to win one of five £50 vouchers to be spent in Leamington town centre shops.
There is also an adaptation of the trail online for those who cannot make it into the town centre.
The hunt coincides with the planned reopening of shops on April 12, and Alison Shaw, BID project manager hopes it will encourage people back into the town.
She said: “We wanted to spread a bit of Easter fun around Leamington and give families a reason to come back into the town and visit our fantastic shops.
“It’s a great way for people to explore the town again, visit a wide range of retailers and enjoy themselves after what’s been a tough year.
“We hope plenty of people give The Great Easter Egg Hunt a go, and we’re looking forward to seeing our shops welcome back their customers once again.”
Entry forms can be downloaded online at www.loveleamington.com, can be picked up from the white unit on the Lower Mall of Royal Priors, or can be found in the Leamington Observer.
A post box for posting entries will be located at Coffee Break on the Upper Mall of Royal Priors, or entries can be posted directly to BID Leamington.
