Town council launches market competitions
Regular competitions are being introduced by Epping Town Council at the weekly Monday market.
The first is on Monday, June 10, when shoppers will have the chance to try and win a £30 Tesco voucher by guessing how many balloons are in a vehicle.
And then on Monday, June 24, the challenge will be to find a cuddly toy hidden among one of the stalls.
Town clerk Beverey Rumsey said: "The town council has decided to hold regular competitions - two each month - to add some variety and fun to the weekly market.
"We have welcomed some new stallholders in recent weeks and see the competitions as another way of reinvigorating the market which has been a focal point for shoppers and visitors to the town for many decades."
Starting this Monday (June 3) Epping St Johns School students will be trading from their own stall in the High Street for five weeks.
