Yes, there really was a poll to decide whether or not my new Goatee should stay or go, so we turned it into a competition!
“Goatee or not Goatee?” That was indeed the question this week as I sprouted hair on my chin just to pass the time during lockdown. It turned out to be mostly grey though! Anyway, we ran a silly online poll and lots of you voted! The end result was 46.1% in favour of it staying, and 53.9% in favour of it going, so it went! But just how many people voted is the burning question? And the correct answer to that question will WIN somebody a lovely prize!
We all know the phrase “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” right? Well, we ran our COVID Cuppa Countdown Competition a couple of weeks ago and as we had well over a thousand entries, we figured you loved the look of the prize. So we are offering the same fab prize again!
One of you will WIN all this lot to make the most of your lockdown beverage experience!
We’re giving away some posh tea & coffee delights from Earsham Street Deli, along with the finest drinkware known to man(or woman)kind. You’ll win ‘Ace Tea’ Lemon Stem Ginger Biscuits, ‘Butterworths’ Suffolk Gold Blend Tea, and their Espresso Latino Coffee, ‘Harris & James’ Pecan and Raisin Chocolate (Also proudly from Suffolk), and then a pair of china Woodfarm Mugs to drink it all from, and your very own Woodfarm ‘Keepcups’ if you’re on the run, I mean on the go! We are even chucking in some Woodfarm Trolley Coins and Fridge Magnets too.
So, we know the goatee bit the dust, but our brain-teasing question is… “How many people voted in our “Goatee or not Goatee?” poll? That’s it! All you need to do is guess correctly and you will WIN all that cool stuff. If nobody guesses correctly we will simply pick the person nearest to the correct answer when we do our Pub Quiz this coming Wednesday, 17th June 2020. In the event that more than one of you guesses correctly (or joint-nearest), we will simply put the correct (or closest) answers in a hat and draw one. Either way, we’ll announce our winner then, so you’d better tune in to Facebook Live at 6.30pm on Wednesday. If you are reading this in the future, then simply use a time machine and go back.
Just to make it really clear and be boring, we have to notify the winner by email first (Facebook rules), so we will email that person live on the air on Wednesday and then immediately tell you all who it was! We did it before and it worked.
Here’s the form to enter. Once you press submit, it will record your entry. You just need to scroll back up to the post if you want to afterwards;
Terms & Conditions;
The prize for this Competition is a bunch of posh Tea, Coffee and Biscuits from Earsham Street Deli in Bungay, and some Woodfarm vessels with which to enjoy it all.
Please note that we cannot technically announce the winner first on Social Media, it has to be by email. If we do not hear back from you within 48 hours of notifying you that you have won, we will pick another correct entrant and so on until someone responds. By entering you do consent to us announcing your name on Social Media though. We won’t divulge any personal info of course.
We’d obviously really appreciate it if you could then shout it from the rooftops!
There is no cash alternative.
Victor Meldrew clause; If all that doesn’t suit you or you are of the opinion that “no-one ever wins these” then feel free to not enter, but gaze at your navel instead. We have given away so many things over the years, including free holidays, to some very happy people, but you’ll never be one of them if you bumble through life with Meldrew shaped chips on your shoulders.
We absolutely never share your info and we retain it purely and simply so we can keep you informed. Informed of our regular Competitions (like this one), Exclusive VIP Offers, Cancellations, Events, Places of Interest to you, and News from around the beautiful County of Suffolk. It is called Marketing. We keep you informed of the good stuff so that you may consider us when making your holiday and short break decisions.
If you do not wish to hear about the things I mentioned you can opt out at any time simply by unsubscribing. Or, and I’m going out on a limb here, don’t enter and we won’t have your details to pore over in our evil lair in the first place.
We do not bombard you. This is just a small, independent business, working hard to promote escapes from the norm in Suffolk; that’s all. We are not out to get you, some things are just nice.
We would love to stay in touch with you but it is your choice. We have built our database in a very professional and responsible way and continually give you the opportunity to not hear from us again. If you choose to ‘leave’ us then I wish you all the best for the future and hope you have enjoyed reading what we have had to say in the past. Miss you already x.
