New competitions at Honiton Library
HONITON Library staff have put their heads together to devise two new competitions, by popular request from regular library-goers.
HONITON Library staff have put their heads together to devise two new competitions, by popular request from regular library-goers.The first, called 'Connect Four', asks entrants to find the link between four items, places, organisations or people. Prizes are family tickets for days out which can be enjoyed over Easter - one to the Underground Passages in Exeter and two for Escot Park near Honiton.The second competition centres around two brothers, Simon and Alex Scarrow, who are both authors. Alex has written the historical thriller October skies. The pair are Honiton Library's authors of the month for March. A signed copy of the book will be the prize in a draw which can be entered by anyone who borrows the title during the month.The book focuses on a wagon train of settlers who, on their way to the Rockies during winter, become snowed in and encounter something dark and malevolent in the woods around them.Simon's latest book, Fire and sword, the third in an epic quarter of novels focusing on Wellington and Napoleon, is also available to borrow. Library Manager Jenny Wood OBE said: "We have built up a loyal following of enthusiastic competition fans amongst our regular library-users. The last one we did was at Christmas and we had started to get very vocal requests that it was time we thought up another one!"Details of both competitions are available from the library (and in the case of 'Connect 4', the local mobile library as well) and they will run from 1st to 31st March. The results will be announced on April 3rd.
