Unlucky in love? You might be in luck
email@example.com 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
