This Spring, 24.5 million of us tuned in to watch the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge finally tie the knot. To commemorate the occasion, you may remember Plumbs ran a competition to give you the chance to win a luxury Royal Break for two in various locations around the UK.
The question we asked you was: Which Royal couple’s wedding date is in 2011? The answer of course was William and Kate. We’ve caught up with a couple of our lucky winners to see how they enjoyed their prize.
Margaret Healey from Cheshire chose to travel to Edinburgh and experience a tour of Holyrood House and afternoon tea at the Balmoral Hotel. Margaret said ‘It was interesting learning about the history of the Scottish Kings and Queens’ and thanked Plumbs ‘for a most enjoyable two days.’
Jean Blackford from Kent chose a trip to London where her tour of Buckingham Palace had the unexpected added bonus of watching a film about the making of Katherine’s wedding dress and shoes. Afterward, Jean enjoyed afternoon tea at Fortnum and Mason where she ‘felt like a V.I.P.’ Jean described her trip to London as ‘perfect in all ways.’
We would like to say a big congratulations to all of our lucky Royal Break winners and hope that you too enjoyed your trips and Royal Wedding souvenirs as Margaret and Jean did.
Keep your eyes peeled for future competitions and great offers coming to you from www.plumbs.co.uk

Retirement Show: Manchester Central (G-mex) 11-12 March 2011
The hugely-successful Retirement Show is the unique forum for all who are retired, semi-retired or who just aspire to retire. At each Retirement Show visitors can find out how to make the most of their retirement (or simply have a great day out!).
All you have to do is be one of the first 50 people to enter the FaceBook promotion and share it on your profile wall with your friends.
To celebrate Plumbs 50th anniversary during 2010, customers got the opportunity to enter a special prize draw to win a luxury cruise.
The fabulous all inclusive prize including a balcony stateroom took in the sights of Barcelona, Rome, Florence, Monte Carlo, Catagena and Cadiz. Every Plumbs customer who placed an order before 30th June was eligible to enter.
The 14 night cruise for 2 people was eventually won by Mrs. Sue Oswell from Aylesbury in Berkshire. Sue said, “So many people have said that they didn’t believe these prizes were ever won.” Well the Plumbs prize of a cruise certainly was won by a delighted Mrs. Oswell!
She remarked, “My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our cruise aboard the P&O Oceana. The food was excellent as was the variety of activities and entertainment onboard.”
Not only had Mrs. Oswell won the cruise but had also been thrilled with new furniture covers from Plumbs. She wrote, “I’m very happy with the way your covers have drawn together the décor in my sitting room and with their quality and the service I received.”
Other prizes included luxury curtains, ottomans, hand tailored throws, Plumbs accessory vouchers and Marks & Spencer vouchers. Congratulations to all of our 50 prize winners and a special congratulations to Mrs. Oswell from everyone at Plumbs!
We restored Anne Pritchard’s 1930’s style wingback fireside chair to its former glory live at this year’s show at the NEC. Mrs Pritchard’s chair was reupholstered in one of our beautiful fabrics – Opulence Floral – Cream, with Anne herself in attendance to see the transformation first hand.
To enter the competition, we asked entrants to submit an image of a chair they would like reupholstered, with the winning chair receiving up to £1000 worth of reupholstery, with a choice of fabric from 30 different options and full reupholstery live at the show earlier this month.
Mrs Pritchard said: “Winning this competition was a complete surprise and I’m absolutely delighted with the result. My chair has been completely transformed and it was a fantastic experience to watch the incredible skill of the Plumbs reupholsterer at work.”
Before and After Images:
From all at Plumbs, we hope Anne gets many years of joy from her restored chair.
