Richmond Information Centre runs Easter quiz and egg give away

Richmond Information Centre volunteer, Philippa Mort, juggling with some of the Cadbury egg prizes in this year’s Easter quiz.

Richmond Information Centre has 100 Cadbury eggs to give away this Easter.

All you have to do to claim one is to take a short tour of the Market Place and answer six simple questions that will put your powers of observation to the test.

This is the second year in which the volunteers who run the information centre have devised a quiz for children under the age of 12, who can of course be accompanied by slightly older helpers.

Here’s how it works.

The centre have produced an easy-to-follow route map and each of the questions on the trail draw the entrant’s gaze to certain features that appear slightly above normal eye level.

Philippa Mort, the information centre volunteer who devised the idea, said: “Most people never pay much attention to those aspects of our town that are not at street level, and quite rightly so.

“Our quiz invites children to look up to see a wealth of interesting features that normally go unnoticed.

“Their success in this pursuit could be rewarded with a free Cadbury Easter egg.”

The quiz begins on Saturday, March 23 and will last until all of the 100 chocolate eggs have been won.

Entry forms are available at the information centre located at the back of the Market Hall.

The centre is open daily from 10am to 4pm.
