Oswestry, United Kingdom, October 28, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Oswestry’s Footfall Partnership has held its annual Town Trail competition, 23 businesses in Oswestry Town Centre participated with the Footfall Project by putting letters in their windows for participants to seek. After collecting the letters, participants had to make a series of words to win the prize. The winning phrase was ‘Creative Use of Empty Space’.
Amy Gregory, Footfall Committee Member, commented,"The feedback on the trail, from those who participated, has been excellent and we look forward to planning out the next one. Activities such as this would not be possible without the kind support of local businesses and this is a clear example of how everyone in the town is working together to support the needs of our local area. Well done to our trail winners!"
This year’s children’s winner was 6 year old Holly Evison, Holly commented, "‘I’d love to spend the money on some Lego; I’m really pleased to win the competition.’ Holly’s mother commented ‘the trail was a challenge; we did it over a series of visits to town, it was good to find some places that you didn’t know were there." The adult winner was Mark Perez.
Footfall Secretary, Erica Morgan, commented on the support given by businesses in Oswestry saying, "I would like to thank all the shops involved in making the Footfall Oswestry Town Trail possible, particularly those that offered to sell and collect the quiz sheets, and especially to those who took part in the quiz, for raising funds that will go towards 'making creative use of empty space' within Oswestry."
