What is going on here I wonder? Laura Whitford from No.3 Royston is celebrating her shop’s first birthday on Monday by holding a picture caption competition on Facebook to win a hamper of goodies worth more than £50.

“When we opened as a pop-up shop last year, I had no idea what the response would be,” said Laura.

“I’ve been absolutely overwhelmed by the support from customers and crafters, and the shop is going from strength to strength.

“To celebrate our first birthday, we’ll have special offers in the shop, and two competitions – decorate the Royston Stone and a caption competition. “Thanks so much to everyone who has supported us over the last year, here’s hoping we’ll be here long enough to celebrate our 25th birthday.

If you wish to take part, search ‘No.3 Royston’ on Facebook or take your caption idea for the above photo into the shop in Melbourn Street before Sunday, September 9.

For the Royston Stone competition print out the picture from the Facebook page and decorate for the chance to win a £10 voucher.
