Through the months of October and November, we gave people the chance to enter our competition to win a dream patio kit, consisting of 25 square metres of sandstone paving, 10 bags of cement, 3 bags of scalpings, 2 bags of sand and 3 tubs of EasyJoint – so everything you’d need to lay your perfect, dream patio!
We ran this competition to celebrate the launch of our new Bournemouth store, so entrants must live in a BH postcode only. We also timed it perfectly so as to make someone’s Christmas by choosing whatever sandstone paving they liked, knowing they’ll have a stunning new patio by the Summer.
We received thousands of competition entries over those two months and used a computer to randomly generate 7 final names. As it was to celebrate the lauch of our new Bournemouth store, we thought it only right that the Bournemouth store manager, AKA Charlie says, chose the winner. Only, he didn’t just announce the winner, he came up with a very inventive and very Christmassy way of choosing and announcing the winner…
So, on the 2nd December, the lucky winner was drawn as Deborah Silvino, a local Bournemouth resident who works at a school in the area. She was delighted to hear the news that she’d won, explaining her garden needed a bit of a makeover!
n Saturday 21st December, Deborah and her son met our friendly Bournemouth team to choose the colour sandstone she’d like. It was a tough decision, but in the end she decided to go with Fernlea (the colour they’re stood on).
Deborah is now in the process of arranging a landscaper to fit her patio, and is very excited to have somewhere to dine al fresco in the Summer and enjoy longer evenings when the weather starts to warm up!
Our Bournemouth store now has inspirational display areas built by some of the landscapers that we supply to. It also has all of our products laid/ out on display. If you’re thinking of updating your garden ready for the Spring/ Summer, now is a great time to visit!
