I hope all’s well!
I have something very exciting to share with you this week – I’m running a very tasty Easter food hamper competition! But first off, who knew that the Beast from the East had an annoying little brother? Despite the forecast, the amount of snow that fell last weekend still surprised many of us. It was another magical walk through ‘Narnia’ for Ellie and Toby on Saturday.
The amazing thing is that only 12 hours earlier on Friday, I took this photo of a beautiful peacock butterfly feeding on heather nectar in my Mum’s sunny garden in West Sussex!
If it’s confusing for us, what must it be like for our wildlife? We have a pair of blackbirds nesting in honeysuckle already and I make sure that I’m keeping my bird feeders well stocked with Richard Jackson’s Premium Bird Food . As primarily ground feeders, the blackbirds haven’t mastered using the feeders, but they wait around beneath, patiently waiting for any dropped food. The amount dropped varies from species to species – fortunately for the blackbirds the nuthatch is particularly messy.
Talking of premium food, I have the honour of presenting many of our wonderful food shows in addition to being gourmand Andi Peters’ sidekick. So it gives me great pleasure in announcing a tasty competition! How would you like to win a fabulous hamper of food featuring some of our wonderful brands offerings? Yep, I thought so! All you have to do is leave a comment below with the words “spring hamper” to be entered into the draw – the competition closes on Monday 26th March and as usual full terms and conditions can be found here.
As if you needed any encouragement to enter the competition – I’ve listed the mouth-watering contents of our fabulous spring hamper prize. By the way, there can only be one winner so I thought it helpful to mention that all of the included food and drink items are available to purchase individually right now.
One lucky winner will receive:
- Bottle of Laithwaite’s Wine Prosecco
- Bottle of Laithwaite’s Wine Rioja
- Bottle of Laitwhaite’s Wine Shiraz
- Eight sponge cakes from The Original Cake Co
- Handmade Easter Chocolate Selection from Calico Cottage
- 10-piece snack pack selection from Joe & Seph’s Popcorn
- Three biscuit tins from Churchill’s Confectionery
All in all our prize is worth over £100! Very nice! With any luck our winner will have be able to savour their gourmet prize over the Easter Holiday.
Good luck to all!
Until next time … stay warm and lucky!
