We've always got something fabulous up for grabs here on Gransnet. If you've got any questions about a prize or would like to discuss what you've won with fellow gransnetters, feel free to post here.

Also - do check your emails around the closing date of the competition you've entered. If you've won, we would have emailed you the details. Don't forget to check your junk mail, as sometimes our mails slip through the net.

If you've got your posts in chronological order, click on 'Last' at the top of this thread to skip to the last page of this thread for the most recent winners. You can find past winners on our previous 'Won anything?' thread here.

Best of luck!

It is good to see some regular posters in the prize list, I
agree, Bathsheba.

Hi GNHQ. I sent my address etc as required by your email. Then I had a reminder so I sent details again. I am getting a bit anxious as I've had no acknowledgement of details and your email said they were required by Monday. Such a lovely prize, I’d hate to miss out.

BradfordLass72 Sun 12-May-19 03:09:22

As Gransnet is clearly an International site, is the no way you can have prizes for us outside the UK?

Greenfinch Sun 12-May-19 08:12:19

Has there been a book give-away for May? I can't see a reference to it anywhere.

Maggiemaybe Mon 13-May-19 12:06:26

There was a draw as usual towards the end of April, Greenfinch, for How It Ends, by Saskia Sarginson. I was assuming I’d missed out again, but there doesn’t seem to be a thread about it. hmm

Greenfinch Mon 13-May-19 12:39:59

That's what I thought Maggiemaybe and I haven't seen anyone saying thank you for their copy. Also confused

SarahGransnet (GNHQ) Fri 17-May-19 16:13:41

Hi all, we posted about the May book club on another thread - there was a delay to the books being received but most people have them now.

SarahGransnet (GNHQ) Fri 17-May-19 16:18:12

Thanks GN and Usborne for very pretty Joules picnic basket and excellent board book. It is perfect for lovely GD’s first book from her Nana and I look forward to some very classy picnics this summer too.😁
