Love was in the air on Valentine’s Day at the Clock Towers Shopping Centre when the winners of the Rugby First Love Ticket competition were presented with their prizes by Jason Moss from Rugby FM.
The prizes, valued at more than £2,000, including a weekend for two in Paris, were generously donated by around 50 town centre businesses that took part in the promotion.
The competition had proved extremely popular with both businesses and customers and the fourteen lucky winners were drawn from over 2,000 entries.
In addition to the top prize of a weekend for two in Paris, prizes included a professional photography session, romantic meals, flowers, champagne, pamper packages, jewellery, chocolates, gifts and more.
Mrs Olner, winner of the weekend for two in Paris, said: “I can’t believe I have won the main prize – I am so excited. Given the prize is a trip to Paris it seems very appropriate that I collected my ‘Love Ticket’ from Café Vin Cinq on High Street!”
Aftab Gaffar, managing director of Rugby First, said: “The promotion has proved very popular and been well received by businesses and customers. We are delighted that over 50 town centre businesses got involved and that over 2000 people entered the competition. Rugby town centre has a lot to offer and promotions like this really help to showcase this. I would like to thank all those businesses and customers that have supported the promotion and look forward to their continued support.”
Clock Towers Centre Manager, Tony Spencer, said: “It was fabulous to see so much support and interest from the community and the competition has reached out to all ages within our community with a wonderful selection of prizes from retailers in Rugby Town Centre. I’m sure that Friday 14th was a busy and enjoyable day for many in the town and we all enjoyed the day at Clock Towers Shopping Centre and look forward to the event next year.”
The promotion was funded through Warwickshire County Council’s Operation Footfall Campaign and supported by Rugby First, Clock Towers Shopping Centre, local businesses and Rugby Borough Council.
