Casino team roll the dice for four happy winners
WELL, what a surprise of a week. Over the past month, with Father’s Day approaching, we’ve been asking our listeners to nominate their dads for a treat, in the form of a VIP experience at Genting Casino in Southport.
Our panel of judges managed to whittle it down to four dads.
It was then up to our listeners to vote, via our website, for the dad they wanted to win.
We received thousands votes.
When it came down to it, the team at Genting Casino decided that all four shortlisted dads were worthy winners, so gave all four of them a VIP Experience night.
I think it’s safe to say, we made quite a few people very happy with that news.
I can’t quite believe we’re into June already and we’re not far at all now from this year’s Southport Air Show.
It takes place from July 6 - 8 and this year, for the very first time, we will be taking control of and running Air Show Radio, which will broadcast across Southport and the immediate surrounding areas on FM for the three days of the Air Show.
This is tremendously exciting and it’s being done with the help of some superb local businesses in the Southport area, without of whom, it wouldn’t be possible.
A big thanks to Mark, Lyn and the team from Anthony James Estate Agents as well as Jonathan Cunningham from STORM Consultancy, to name just two of many.
We’ll be bringing you more exciting details about this nearer the time. This is just a prime example of how passionate some people in our town are and how much they want to help promote Southport to that wider audience.
Talking of shows, this weekend we see the return of the Woodvale Rally to Victoria Park.
It’s always a great event.
All this week we’ll be giving you the chance to win tickets to the rally. Listen out for all the details. Remember, you can join me, weekdays from 3pm on DAB+ Digital Radio, mobile apps and of course online via www.sandgrounderradio.co.uk
