Post script: the competition was won by local resident Helen McDonald. Helen said:
“I was delighted to win this beautiful hamper from a shop I consider to be a real local asset given the range of products Laura stocks, some of which can be hard to find elsewhere; the helpful and friendly staff; the eco-friendly product refills… and not forgetting the excellent coffee and tempting cakes and other products for in-store or take-away feasting!”
“I really wanted to get the Bromley Buzz answers right to be in with a chance of winning this fab prize – so did invest time in my competition entry. It’s very nice when that pays off – as well as having some luck on your side of course!”
Background – original post
The Bromley Buzz podcast team have teamed up with Laura’s Larder in Petts Wood to offer a New Year’s competition. The prize is a hamper with a range of food and drink to get 2023 off to a lovely start for one winner. It’s crammed with a selection of Laura’s Larder’s best-selling fine food and wine in one of their beautiful signature grey wicker hampers, total value £100.
How to enter? Answer the following questions in an email to email@example.com, titled ‘Bromley Buzz competition 1’
1. Name the local Bromley Members of Parliament who have been interviewed by the Bromley Buzz podcast
2. Name the brand of garlic butter stocked by Laura’s Larder. Bromley Buzz co-presenter Darren loves it, especially the smoked garlic variety, and he has talked about it on the podcast. He will be again in January. Do go and try some for yourself from Laura’s Larder!
Entries should be sent by email by midnight on Friday 17th February 2023 to firstname.lastname@example.org titled “Bromley Buzz competition 1”. The single winner will be chosen, at random, from those who answer the two questions correctly, as judged by Bromley Buzz co-presenters Darren Weale and Zeenat Noorani. It would be helpful if you could supply a telephone number, which would only be used to notify you if you win.
This will be a collection-only prize, so anyone who cannot go to the shop in normal, published opening hours to collect the hamper on or before 17th March 2023 will be disqualified and another winner chosen from correct entries submitted.
If the second (back up) winner drawn on the same basis from remaining entries and notified were not to collect the prize on or by 17th April 2023, the hamper will be donated to Bromley Foodbank.
