Young people from across the city and beyond are being encouraged to become Dundee detectives during the school holidays.

Participants will be encouraged to discover an article in the window of a participating city centre business, shop or café that doesn’t fit in there.

Mark Flynn convener of Dundee City Council’s city development committee, who helped launch the competition said: “We want young people to have a bit of fun, a little challenge and at the end a chance to top up their pocket money by winning either a £30, £20 or £10 gift card.

“Clearly though there is a serious point behind this initiative and we want to make coming into the city centre a positive experience for young people that becomes a part of their life going forward.”

The 20 businesses taking part in the inaugural Discover Window Trail competition will display a numbered Sunny Dundee window sticker which will correspond to the row number on the entry form.

Budding detectives have been given a helpful hint that the rogue item may relate to #SunnyDundee, have a historical Dundee connection or be something the city is famous for.

Fully completed forms must be subitted by 5pm on Sunday October 23 to the Overgate Customer Services Desk (upper floor beside New Look) for a chance to win one of the three prizes donated by Dundee Loves Local.
