Say something special to your loved one this Valentine’s Day with the Courier.

February 14 is here again and the Courier is inviting smitten folk across the area to text in to see your message published in the paper.

And this year the Courier has teamed up with Frankie and Benny’s who have provided a top prize for the judge’s favourite romantic message.

Sending a message will automatically enter you into the competition, where the winner will win a £25 voucher to treat their loved one at Frankie and Benny’s restaurant at Broad Street Plaza this Valentine’s Day.

So take this chance to tell your loved one how much they mean to you - and be in with a chance of winning a tasty meal on the night.

To enter, text: HXC (space) LOVE (space) your message to 61500. Entries must be sent by the closing date of Friday Febuary 8 at noon. Messages will be published in the Courier on Friday February 15.

Texts will cost £3 plus your standard network rate. Maximum 160 characters. All texts will be monitored. Inappropriate messages will not be included. See page 36 of this week’s Courier for more details.
