Our latest winners
The beaming smiles say it all as the winner of our Snowdogs competition in the November edition of Ashford For You magazine collect their prizes!
Melissa Goldup of Coronation Drive, Great Chart was one of nearly 100 readers who entered our competition hoping to win a bundle of paw-some goodies by finding the correct number of Snowdogs ‘hiding’ among the pages.
Winner Melissa and her eight-year-old daughter Abigail visited the tourist information centre at Ashford Gateway to collect their prizes, including a Classic Snowdog model, T-towel, mug, fridge magnet and keyring. The delighted duo are pictured with their favourite pooch, Snowbrador, who lives in the TIC.
Melissa said: “We are thrilled to win the competition. We loved the Snowdog Trail and it was so fantastic to see the dogs around the town. And now we have a permanent reminder of them at home!”
When Mrs Claire Pilcher found out she’d been chosen as the winner of a £50 shopping voucher for taking part in our readers’ survey in Ashford For You magazine, she had plenty of reason to celebrate.
“When I found out I was actually in London at the theatre. My husband had bought tickets for Aladdin as my Christmas present. It was a fabulous surprise to hear about the magazine prize – what a lovely day out I had!” said Claire, of Dexter Close, Kennington, Ashford.
Mrs Pilcher was full of praise for Ashford For You, describing it as “a very good read” and giving it top marks for keeping readers informed about what’s going on at the council and in the borough.
And the £50 voucher? That will be used to help pay for a new TV in the kitchen, said Claire.
