BUDDING detectives have been enjoying testing their skills in Dorchester.
The Dorchester BID (Business Improvement District) has been running a Super Sleuth contest for kids as its second annual competition.
Phil Gordon from the BID said the initiative had again proved popular.
It has proved so popular that the deadline for the competition had been extended until September 16 to give more youngsters the chance to get involved.
Mr Gordon, pictured right with Jennifer Prince of the TIC and supersleuth Jim Clayton and his brother Ted and their father Matt, said: “So far I have had nothing but positive responses and I keep finding little clusters of kids with their mums and dads going round looking for things.”
The competition sees youngsters challenge to track down shops or businesses from a photograph showing an iconic part of the building or visual clue.
When they identify the location they can go in and ask for a sticker to help them complete the set.
Mr Gordon warned that a couple of the shops involved had changed their window displays since the photos were taken but anyone struggling can get tips on Twitter by tweeting @DorchesterBID or @Dorchdude or from the Visit Dorchester Facebook page.
