Nominate a ‘Queen For The Day’ to celebrate The Queens Diamond Jubiliee. Bennetts Funeral Directors of Brentwood and Billericay, Essex in association with Brentwood Gazette and Local Businesses get support from Mark Reed of Brentwood Theatre who was interviewed by Alan Johnson on Phoenix FM
Mark Reed from Brentwood Theatre popped in to Phoenix Fm on Saturday 12th May to talk about a very exciting competition being run by Bennetts Funeral Directors, in conjunction with the Gazette and various local businesses including Bows, Comfort and Joy, French Quarter, Hair Company, Inula Beauty, Lance James Jewellers, Mesh, Racquet, etc. They’re on the search for two ladies – one in each of Billericay and Brentwood – who deserve to be treated like royalty as Queen for a Day. Mark explained that the lucky winner of each title might have fought back against the odds to achieve the unachievable; given up a lot to help someone else over a long period of time; or perhaps she’ll be someone who works tirelessly to help others within the community. Whoever is crowned will enjoy a day she’ll never forget, being picked up in a Rolls Royce for a day that will include tea and prize giving at a swanky hotel Marygreen Manor in Brentwood; a shopping spree; hair styling and beauty pampering; and a special VIP visit to a mystery local attraction – all rounded off with a state dinner for two. If you know a lady living in Billericay or Brentwood who deserves all this, send a letter, with their name and contact details, plus up to 300 words explaining why they are deserving of the prize, to Jane Bennett, Bennetts Funeral Directors, 120 High Street, Brentwood, CM14 4AS. The closing date is 21 May; only one nomination is allowed per household, and the judges’ decision is final. Winners have to be available between 10am and 10pm on 31 May for the Billericay prize and 1 June for the Brentwood prize, and they must be happy to take part in all aspects of the competition. The winners may be accompanied by an escort. We all know someone who deserves a day like this!
