Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Most Unromantic Man Competition - By Tim Collins

tcollins@thek­m­group.co.uk women of the town. And the tale of the least ro­man­tic man will win the ‘un­lucky’ lady a free evening at the pub, in Trin­ity Road on the Eureka Place busi­ness park.

Land­lord Kel­lie McDon­ald, 43, is seek­ing tales of the unchival­rous be­hav­iour of peo­ple’s part­ners or at­tempts at ro­mance gone wrong, with bonus points for lack of

ef­fort and a bliss­ful un­aware­ness of what their lovers want.

Last year the com­pe­ti­tion prompted an out­pour­ing of frus­tra­tion from fe­male read­ers of the Ken­tish Ex­press.

Mother-of-three Kel­lie said: “We had some lovely sto­ries put for­ward and some quite heart-warm­ing tales too. It went so well last year that we thought we would run the con­test again. “We want to keep things light-hearted, so we don’t want any­thing too sad. “But if your man is some­body who sees Valen­tine’s Day as just another day, and not as a

time to cel­e­brate your re­la­tion­ship, we’d love to hear from you.”

The win­ner will be re­warded with a three-course meal and a bot­tle of bub­bly at The Pheas­ant. Their part­ner’s pres­ence will be op­tional.

The lady will also re­ceive a rose and a box of choco­lates, for stick­ing by their man through thick and thin.

Last year’s win­ner, Wendy Cleave from South Ash­ford, was cho­sen for time served in putting up with her hus­band of 31 years, Christo­pher. Her tri­als be­gan on their first date when, dressed up to the nines for a night out on the town, Chris in­stead took Wendy to a muddy Can­ter­bury speed­way track.

The win­ner will be cho­sen by Kel­lie and will be an­nounced in the Ken­tish Ex­press on Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 6. En­tries must be re­ceived by the end of Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 2. To en­ter, write to Ken­tish Ex­press, 34-36 North Street, Ash­ford, TN24 8JR or email ken­tish­ex­press@ thek­m­group.co.uk
