Win a Jubilee bouquet

We've teamed up with Kendalls Florist in St Albans (213 Hatfield Road, 01727 860207) to offer one lucky winner a beautiful gift bouquet to celebrate the Jubilee.

This hand-tied arrangement consists of blue hydrangea, red and white roses, white gerbera, thistle and exotic leaves. All finished in a very striking Union Jack bag. Enter our competition now for your chance to win!
