LOVE was in the air for one lucky couple who got an unexpected surprise at The Rock on Saturday when they scooped a Valentines trip to Paris

Peter and Jenny Seal, from Edenfield won the romantic getaway to the city of love after taking part in the shopping centre's Love is in the Air competition.

The game saw couples enter the Love Booth in pairs, with one answering questions to win time for their partner who was trying to grab a flying golden ticket.

Golden ticket winners were then entered in to a draw, being invited back to the big reveal at the end of the event, where Mr and Mrs Seal, who have two children, were chosen at random.

Mr Seal said he was delighted with the win, and Mrs Seal added: "I've never been to Paris, I've always wanted to go. I can't believe we won."

Through out the day a host of other prizes were given away and The Rock's stilt-walking King and Queen of Hearts handed out bags of chocolate hearts to shoppers.

Arnold Wilcox-Wood, Centre Director at The Rock, said: “Love was certainly in the air at The Rock this weekend - it was wonderful to see so many visitors having fun in the competition and enjoying the treats being handed out by our stilt walkers.

"There’s still a couple of days to go until Valentine’s Day so if you’re after last minute gifts, outfits or the perfect place for a date, we’ve got you covered.”
