As part of our Buy Local Week stand at Fresh Friday last week, we gave passing shoppers the opportunity to enter several competitions to WIN some fantastic prizes from local businesses.  

Names have been picked at random from all the correct entries and the winners are...........

Chique Beauty, Hair & Nails: Cut & Blow Dry
Q. Where is Chique Salon located?
A. Northside, The Bridge, Euro House, Opposite Pretty Woman 
"I was over the moon to have won this prize. As soon as I went in I was welcomed and looked after. A very relaxed place to have your hair done. I am loving my new hair cut and will be back again". 

Bonboniera: Sweet Buffet Cart
Q. Name a product you can hire from Bonboniera?
A. Sweet Buffet Cart, table linen, fancy dress, wedding post box

Guernsey PA: Half Day Organisational Assistance
Q. What does PA stand for?
A.  Personal Assistant
"I had asked Anne for some help with de-cluttering, as I am known to keeping receipts and other documents for decades. Under Anne's guidance we managed to go through three big plastic boxes and ended up with two bin bags full of rubbish, one box for shredding, one box for paper recycling and two carrier bags for the charity quite a result. Equipped with some useful tips on how to continue, I am now well on the road to a much more organised household. I found Anne very personable and I can certainly recommend her". 

Body & Sole: Pia Rossini Beach Bag
Q. Name a product you can buy from Body & Sole?
A. Swimwear, lingerie, leotards, prom/ball dresses, hoserie, shoes. 
"That's great! I never win anything! I didn't realise Body & Sole stocked so much".

Thank you to the generous participating businesses and all those that took part PLUS congratulations to all the lucky winners. 


PLUS....thebestof had five daily prizes up for grabs during the week to anyone who signed up to the Buy Local Supporters Pledge and provided a business with a review and we were delighted to hear that a we had a lucky local winner..........

JEN MERRIETT was picked to win £100 to spend on any local business on thebestof Guernsey website.  Jen chose to use her voucher with The Farmhouse Hotel & Restaurant where she enjoyed one of their delicious afternoon teas.
“We spent an afternoon on the sunny veranda of The Farmhouse Restaurant enjoying their luxury afternoon tea.  Everything was delicious; I only wish they had remembered to bring us our scones and clotted cream (the highlight of my tea)! However, we did receive some warm scones to take away in the end.  Worth the splurge!”
