Winners delighted as draws resume
THE Wells Loyalty League draws have resumed now that businesses are able to trade more normally and the high street is busy again.
The winning name drawn out in May was that of Beryl Fricker, who will receive five £10 vouchers to spend in businesses run by league members.
She said: “I am delighted to have won and I look forward to deciding where to spend the vouchers.”
The special shopping scheme is designed to reward loyal shoppers in Wells and provide a boost for local businesses.
Shoppers can collect a loyalty card from participating retailers, which the traders will stamp with the value of the purchase. When there are £100 worth of stamps on the card it can be dropped into a box at the Town Hall.
Elizabeth Walker, a flute teacher at Wells Cathedral School, was one of the early draw winners, and she collected her vouchers in May. A big fan of the Wells shopping experience, she said: “I am thrilled to be the recipient of vouchers to spend in local shops.
“As a visiting music teacher at Wells Cathedral School, I travel to Wells every week in term time to teach the flute and I enjoy snatched moments in between pupils, where I have, for a number of years now, explored the fabulous local cheeses, purchased wine and shopped for clothes at some of the city’s unique shops with their personal and local style.”
