Stranger in the Window

Stranger in the Window competition is back!

The competition runs from 20th July to 13th August where all completed forms have to be handed into Skinners Electricals for marking by Saturday 13th August

The Chamber’s Summer favourite for children, families and the elderly called “Stranger in the Window” is back.

For an advertising spend of only £10, a business can guarantee to have lots of people looking closely at what they do sell while competitors are trying to spot what they do not sell.

Every year we do have a number of children taking part, we also have adults and elderly couples or individuals doing the competition, the prize money is as follows:

• £70 for first prize
• £25 for second prise
• £15 for third prize.

It only costs £1 for an entry form so the prize money represents a good return for money with the added bonus of the exercise you get walking around to find the item.

The entry forms will be available from newsagents JJ Woods 11, High Street
and Skinners Electricals at 70, High Street when the competition starts on 21st July.

To help entrants we are also publishing 10 clues each week for the entrants to help them with their task of finding all the strangers and this is available at
