Ladies! Propose on the front page...?

THIS year’s leap year provides the perfect opportunity for women to pop the question to their other halves - and the Courier can carry the proposal on the front page!

The leap day, February 29, tradition where women can break with the norm and be the one who asks for the hand in marriage is nearly upon us - in just over a week’s time.

Any women in Calderdale plotting to take advantage of the four-yearly date can use the Courier’s own front page on the day for the Big Question.

l Another option for would-be brides to consider is a luxury prize giveaway at Holdsworth House.

The Courier has teamed up with the top Halifax hotel and restaurant which is offering to host the best proposal idea.

Women can win their bespoke proposal at Holdsworth House to the value of £200 or take up its ‘Audience with...’ Proposal Package where the question can be popped in their restaurant.

To enter the Holdsworth House prize, tell us in 50 words or less how you would propose at the hotel and the winning idea will appear in the Courier.
