Our winner is crowned

January 15th, 2018

To celebrate the release of acclaimed TV drama The Crown: Season One – on Blu-ray and DVD, Brewers Decorator Centres held a very royal competition giving one lucky winner the ultimate regal break in one of the finest castle hotels on the edge of the Cotswolds. Plus, 15 box-sets of The Crown: Season One for 15 lucky runners-up.

Selected at random, Paul Temperton was selected as our winner and will be whisked away for a 2 nights’ luxury stay at Thornbury Castle including a delicious set dinner at the castle’s acclaimed restaurant plus £150 spending money, a prize fit for royalty!

Paul entered the competition online after seeing an advert and hoping to win as it would be a lovely treat for him and his wife.

Paul said, “It’s fantastic that I have been chosen as the winner, it’s nice. It’s an awkward time at the moment as I’m currently recovering from an operation which means I must rest for 8 weeks. We had not planned to have a break this year as we didn’t have the funds to do so, so we are very grateful. This is just what we needed to brighten things up.”

Paul is a self-employed Painter and Decorator from Ripley, Derbyshire. His work includes internal and external painting, paper hanging, coving and small tiling jobs.

Congratulations to our 15 runners-up whom each receive The Crown: Season One box-set: Zoe Dennett, Carole Sheldrake, Lester Dewey, Steven Richardson, Steven Cooper, Claire Lawton, Caroline Oliver, Linda Griffiths, Janet Angelo, Ronnie Buckley, Robin Pettitt, Steven Shave, Dominique Ralf, Vincent Genco and Toni Arnott.
