A THIRSK couple have won a £200 voucher to spend at The Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa at Bolton Abbey after winning a competition hosted by ourselves at this year’s Great Yorkshire Show.
Ollie and Natalie Reade, who are currently selling their home with Dacres, visited our exhibition stand at the show and took part in the ‘Guess the Yorkshire Landmarks’ competition, which challenged entrants to identify six leading attractions from abstract photographs.  The couple got all six correct and were then entered into a prize draw with all the other successful entrants.
Andrew Skelton, from our Thirsk branch, said: “This year’s Great Yorkshire Show was a spectacular event from start to finish, with glorious sunshine over the three days and huge numbers of visitors.  As a longstanding Yorkshire business, with an extremely strong presence and 21 offices throughout North and West Yorkshire, it’s an honour to be associated with it.
“Our exhibition stand proved extremely popular and it was a wonderful opportunity to meet lots of new and existing clients, including Ollie and Natalie who are currently selling their home with our Thirsk office.  Hundreds of people entered our competition, but only a few correctly identified all six local landmarks, and we’re delighted to present Ollie and Natalie with their prize.”
Ollie said: “Because we’re selling our house with Dacres at the moment, when we saw the company’s stand we decided to go and say ‘hello’.  We then entered the competition and didn’t think anything else about it until we got the phone call saying we’d won, which was a lovely surprise.  The Devonshire Arms has a superb reputation and we’re now planning to celebrate our anniversary there.”
The Great Yorkshire Show is organised by the Yorkshire Agricultural Society and features the best of British farming. Held at the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate it gives first-hand experience of agriculture and rural life through demonstrations and exhibitions. The show attracts around 130,000 visitors over three days.
