We’re on the search for the UK’s coolest and quirkiest curiosities, and want to hear why you Love Where You Live! This week, we’re asking you to shout loud and proud about your local… benches!

Brilliant benches, bizarre benches, bafflingly-placed benches… Anything goes, so long as it’s a bench! We’ll pick our favourites to feature in our Brilliant Benches blog post.

 


Up For Grabs

 

As well as the kudos of being a TT #LoveWhereYouLive Ambassador, and the chance to have your local bench featured for all to see, you may be rewarded with a prize!

All submissions featured on our Brilliant Benches blog will receive a Treasure Trails voucher. PLUS, our top pick will be awarded the MISSION ONE Star Prize:

A box of Cornish Pasties from our friends at The Cornish Hamper Store!

The TOP Prize – Cornish Pasties! Meat, vegetarian and vegan options are available.

 


MISSION ONE Details

 

Your first MISSION is to seek out the best, most brilliant or most bizarre bench you can find in your local area. It could be one you already know about, or you could set out on a special mission to track one down! 

Take a photograph; just the bench, or with you on it – you decide!  Then, submit your photo along with your bench details via the form below. 

Can’t get out exploring at the moment but have a great bench story? We’d love to hear about that too! Have you met your soulmate on a bench or had a moment of inspiration? Let us know, and you could still make our ‘favourites to feature’!
