Newport business-boosting competition winners announced

Written on July 8, 2021

Newport Rotary Lite’s Spot the Oddity competition ran for just over a month in May and June, and winning entrants have received a £25 voucher to spend in participating businesses in Newport.

Newport Rotary Lite President Phil Knight said: “We’re delighted we had such a positive response from both people doing the competition and Newport businesses – the support has been great, and people have had a lot of fun.”

“The feedback has been brilliant, with several shops reporting increased footfall, people going into Newport businesses that they’ve never been in before, and, perhaps best of all at the moment, really enjoying a free activity in the centre of our town.

“The winners were Kate and Stuart King, Sam Edgeley, Kim and Lawrie Boardman, and 10-year-old Sophie Dahn and her six-year-old sister Lucy.”

Kate King said “It was a great way of exploring and mooching around shops in Newport.

“It made us stop and look in businesses we didn’t really look in before. We loved it!”
