Romance is in the air at the Market Gates Shopping Centre, Great Yarmouth when shoppers take part in a Get Hooked Up Valentine’s competition.

On Saturday, January 27 between 11am and 3pm, shoppers out buying cards, chocolates and gifts for their ‘significant other’ will be handed a fishing rod and invited to ‘hook’ one of the gift bags displayed.

Each bag contains a card suggesting which level of prize the angler has won or whether they will receive a consolation prize of a chocolate duck.

The top and medium prizes, which have been sourced from the shops and stores in the centre, will be on display and the winner invited to select which prize they want.

“The ‘Get Hooked Up for Valentine’s Day’ competition is free to enter,” said Dee Greenwood, deputy manager of the Market Gates Shopping Centre. “and all our shoppers’ ‘angling’ skills will be rewarded. No one’s love goes unrequited as there are even consolation prizes of chocolate ducks - so everyone’s a winner!”

“From cards to chocolates, jewellery to romantic breaks, there’s something special for everyone at the Market Gates Shopping Centre this Valentine’s Day!”
