Winners of Hove Business Association's "Stamp'n Win!" competition have been drawn.

The winners of Hove Business Association's "Stamp'n Win!" Christmas shopping trail competition have been drawn. The first prize on offer was £500 cash; 19 other prizes were donated by local businesses.

The draw took place on the upper deck of a double-decker bus provided by Martin Harris, managing director of Brighton and Hove Bus and Coach Company.

The bus toured the trail route before arriving at the home of the winner, where Jill Humphrey, chair of Hove Business Association, presented the main cash prize to Sam McNeil.

Ms McNeil picked up her shopping trail map on one of the local buses and entered our competition after encouragement from her young daughter, who was excited about collecting the different stamps on the trail.

The winners of the other 19 prizes came from across the region. And while most had collected their printed A5 entry maps from participating retailers, local buses, or Hove Town Hall, some had entered the competition via the shopping trail grid printed in Brighton and Hove Independent last month.
