A seven-year-old boy has been drawn as the winner of a Forres Heritage Trust Quiz that was circulated around the town.

Fergus Rhind was picked as the winner of the quiz created by trust supporter John Sutherland and made available in town centre shops.

Fergus, who did the quiz with help from his dad and was presented with a £20 prize, said: “I enjoyed taking part.”

A total of 13 completed quizzes were submitted with six being marked completely correct.

And Anderson’s Primary School pupil Fergus was drawn as the winner.

John created the quiz to raise funds for volunteer-run Forres Heritage Trust.

The group owns the Tolbooth and also looks after Nelson’s Tower.

He said: “I am very passionate about the history of Forres and I thought a quiz about it would be fun. It was great to see quite a few youngsters taking part. A big well done to Fergus for getting all of the answers right.”

FHT chairman George Alexander said: “John has been a huge supporter of the trust and we thank him for his efforts in creating the quiz.

“Like John said, it was great to see young people taking part and I congratulate Fergus on his achievement.”
