Love was most certainly in the air in Urmston in February despite the cold and wet weather.
To celebrate Valentine’s Day and share a little love with those in our wonderful town centre, the Love Urmston team went out and about on the Friday 14 February encouraging shoppers and those working in local businesses to get into the spirit of the day and ‘Share a Selfie’ with someone that they loved for the chance to win one of three fantastic £50 restaurant vouchers.
We teamed up with the experts at Ixia Flowers UK on Railway Road to create a beautiful handmade selfie frame which was adorned with fresh red roses and gorgeous green foliage, creating a stunning and suitable prop! With the selfie frame in tow, the Love Urmston team set about stopping people in the street and popping into local businesses to invite people to snap a photo with someone that they love – their mum, dad, wife, husband, nan, grandad, kids, colleagues, friends and even a dog! It was a fun afternoon on a very wet February day.
Lots of photos were taken and then shared on the Love Urmston Facebook page generating thousands of likes and lots of lovely comments. There was definitely a whole lot of love in Urmston that afternoon and it very hard to choose a winner. Luckily that was out of our hands. The photos were shared, with all of the entrants encouraging their friends and families to get involved and like their photo. After 48 hours the likes were counted and we eventually whittled the best photos down to just three, and the ones with the most likes were the winners. We had three clear winners.
Hannah and Marley with 60 votes, the Schultz family with 46 votes and our very own Hayley from What’s the Catch with 31 votes.
Each winner won £50 towards dinner at a restaurant of their choice in Urmston…it’s time for the winners to get booking and enjoy some a delicious dinner!
