Sutton-in-Ashfield shoppers will be 'all loved up' on Saturday 10th February, as they are invited to show their romantic side on camera in a free selfie competition to win a £500 prize!

A free Selfie-Pod will be in Idlewells Shopping Centre between 11am - 3pm, for shoppers to create a selfie 'filled with love'. Couples, groups and individuals of all ages are invited to come along, get creative, enjoy a free set of photographs to take away - and hang one set on a giant red heart for all to see!

All of the photographs on display, and who wish to be included, will be viewed 'after hours' by the Idlewells management team, and whittled down to 5 favourites. These 5 will then be taken around all of the shops for voting by each store's Manager. The chosen photograph entrant will be announced on Valentine's Day and awarded an Idlewells store prize of their choosing - up to the value of £500.

Prizes suggested by the Idlewells team include; an engagement ring, eternity ring - or even a wedding ring - from one of the centre's jewellers, an inflatable hot tub from Argos and a holiday voucher from Tui. 

"We would love people to have some fun with this, and really get imaginative when planning their photo!" said Chloe O'Donnell, Idlewells' Centre Manager. "The criteria for the winning picture will simply be for the snap that most appeals to the judges - whether it's due to its inventiveness, humour, cuteness - or just a 'great' picture. It's a royal wedding year, so maybe we will have some entrants to reflect that."

Following an immensely successful Christmas period, with visitor figures up considerably on last year, Love Snaps is another event funded by Idlewells Shopping Centre to thank its customers for their ongoing support of its stores and Sutton town centre.

"We love to give back to our loyal customers and communities, and have another great programme of activities, events and giveaways in the coming year." Concluded Chloe.
