A COUPLE who ran a butcher's shop in Slaithwaite for almost 50 years have won £2,000 in the Examiner's 6 Days Of Christmas competition.
Rosemary Weaving and her husband, Eric, of Slaithwaite, have won the cash to spend at Huddersfield furnishings store Thatchers.
Mrs Weaving, 64, said: "It was a wonderful surprise, especially at this time of year. I enter competitions, but never win."
Mrs Weaving added: "We have just bought a new suite so we'll probably spend the money on furniture, or perhaps curtains."
Mr Weaving ran Garsides butchers in Slaithwaite for 47 years until he retired in July 2003 and his wife worked alongside him.
The couple have two daughters, Amanda, aged 36, and Andrea, 34, and a seven-year-old grandson, Harvey.
Mr and Mrs Weaving attend St James's Church in Slaithwaite.
The 10 runners-up, who each received £50 in High Street vouchers, are: Mrs M M Taylor, of Paddock; Norma Turner, of Lepton; Mrs M Harling, of Newsome; Barbara Ann Conneely, of Crosland Moor; S McAllister, of Slaithwaite; Mrs J Yung, of Deighton; Mrs J M Senior, of Holmbridge; Mrs S Crosland, of Mount; Mrs B Simpson, of Newsome; and Margaret Sykes, of Crosland Moor.
