Competition

It’s our favourite time of year and to celebrate we’ve partnered with 14 amazing local businesses for a massive ONE WINNER TAKES ALL competition! Each of the businesses has donated an excellent prize which you could win by following these simple steps:

  • Visit the Instagram pages of each of the 14 businesses and follow them if you don’t already. Don't forget to follow Mum's guide to St Albans too!
  • Tag a friend in the comments of the main competition post, each friend tagged as a separate comment is an extra entry

The competition closes at midnight on Saturday 14th December so don’t wait too long to enter! You’ll be notified by direct message within 48 hours of the competition closing so don’t forget to keep an eye on your messages.
