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.

Best of luck!

How nice to see just a very small sprinkling of regulars winning prizes.
I am afraid sometimes I feel a little cross!!!

Greenfinch Tue 16-Jul-19 15:03:43

I totally agree annsixty.It is good to see regular contributors win something.

Hi SarahGransnet.
Thank you for letting me know I have won a Jane Corry book.
Unfortunately you seem to be having trouble getting my address details, and sent me another email today asking for my address again by 9am tomorrow or the prize would go to someone else. I did reply to the first email straight away, but you don’t seem to have got it, so have tried again today in response to your latest email. I’m hoping this time it has reached you, but if not, could you contact me again and I’ll try to figure out what’s going wrong.
Many thanks.

Mapleleaf Wed 17-Jul-19 22:20:51

Thanks for letting me know you’ve got my address this time. 🙂

Many thanks for my copy of The Mother in Law which arrived this morning. Looking forward to reading it.

callgirl1 Sun 04-Aug-19 16:39:28

I`ve just finished reading The Mother-in-Law, and enjoyed it immensely. I`m not usually a fan of books where the story goes back and forth datewise, but in this case it worked. Thank you again for my prize.

I agree annsixty- but it should not be just" a small sprinkling of regulars" it should be distributed fairly across all who enter!especially seems unfair when one person wins TWO prizes! It seems like the person drawing them out cant be bothered to distribute fairly! Sorry to the winners its not your fault,so well done,it just seems unfair is all!
