Railway volunteer wins ‘Reepham fivers’

The All About Reepham event on 25 February saw Reepham Chamber of Commerce challenging those who attended to unscramble anagrams to identify the names of 20 Reepham businesses.

The prize of £50 to be spent in Reepham was awarded to Ben Sharred, a volunteer with Whitwell & Reepham Railway. He not only solved all of the anagrams, but was also closest in the tie-breaker question.
Ben was delighted to receive his prize from Chamber treasurer Claudia Lowe, which took the form of “Reepham Fivers” – ten £5 vouchers that can be spent in participating shops, eateries and businesses in Reepham.
Aged 19, Ben became involved with Whitwell Station through his grandfather who lives in Reepham and attended the All About Reepham event to help out on the Whitwell Station stand. He said that his £50 will probably be spent at Reepham Home Hardware.
