You can Escape To The Chateau with this competition from Dick and Angel Strawbridge

Always fancied a night away in Dick and Angel Strawbridge‘s incredible French chateau? Well now you can, if you win this new competition from the DIY-loving couple.

Dick and Angel Strawbridge

The stars of the TV series Escape to the Chateau have launched a competition to win an overnight stay for two at The Chateau – all you have to do is tell them how you’ve developed a new skill or made a transformation at home during lockdown. It could be a home DIY project you’ve finally completed or learning yoga in your living room – whatever it is, Dick and Angel want to know about it.

Part of a wider series of competitions, which they’ve dubbed the ‘Dare to Do It – at Home’ competitions, the couple want to encourage people to look after their wellbeing in this tumultuous time, by dedicating time to new projects and ventures, however big or small.

The couple said on their website: ‘We know that it’s important to look after ourselves, so we’ve been keeping really busy, having great fun with the children, working in our kitchen garden, and cooking lots.  We’re making a conscious effort to eat well, keep active and be creative.’

Explaining the outlines of the competition, they continued: ‘It may be that you’ve finally mastered your sun salutations by practicing yoga in your living room, or you’ve dug out your paints and easel and got creative with all the extra time at home. Maybe you’ve even challenged yourself to get through those DIY projects you’ve been meaning to start, that have niggled you for years…

‘We’re interested in understanding whatever skills you’ve developed, or transformations you’ve made to keep yourself well.  Tell us what you’ve done and how you’ve ensured your wellbeing, and that of your family, in these difficult times!’
