Four-year old Elliot Ryde has been presented with the prize for this year’s correct entry in the Richmond Easter Window Competition.

The competition was organised by the Richmond Business and Tourism Association (RBTA) and was run in the town over the Easter holidays.

Members of the public were invited to look around the shop windows and identify which businesses fitted the clues.

Elliot’s name was drawn from amongst the correct entries and he has received a prize of a chocolate tractor from local chocolate shop, Mocha, and a Richmond Town Family Ticket, which is valid for one admission in 2017 to the Georgian Theatre Experience, The Green Howards Museum, Richmondshire Museum and Richmond Castle.

This year the tickets also entitle the holder to ten per cent off the bill when eating at The Black Lion Hotel, Cross View Tea Rooms, Jefferson, Rustique and Sip.

Elliot, who lives in Richmond, expressed his delight at winning the competition and said: “I love everything in Richmond and I love chocolate tractors”.
Marcia McLuckie, chair of RBTA, said: “What better accolade could Richmond be given.

“I am very glad that Elliot is such a happy Richmond resident.”
