We're pleased to announce the winner of our Royal Baby Name competition is Mrs Rachel Campbell-Colquhoun, now the proud recipient of £100 worth of COOK Gift Vouchers. We don't have a fancy frame on an easel, or the world watching, but we hope Rachel will be pretty happy with her prize all the same.
From our wordle we can see that the COOK community en masse thought that the baby was going to be a girl, with Elizabeth, Victoria, Alexandra and Diana high up on our list of girl's names.
Out of all of the boy's names entered, we had 175 Georges. We randomly selected Rachel as our winner and she will shortly receive her prize of £100 worth of COOK Gift Vouchers.
In anticipation of Kate's baby maybe arriving this weekend we thought we'd run a little competition to guess the name. The prize will be £100 worth of COOK gift vouchers (which just happens to be the perfect gift for an exhausted new mum - but don't worry we won't make you send your prize to Kate.)
We'll also make one of our beloved wordles so we can see what the general COOK community consensus, make a bit of history (and feel smug together if we're right.)
So - what do you think the royal baby will be called? Fill out the form over here to be entered into the competition and the wordle. Enter fast though - the competition will end before the baby's name is announced...!
We're pleased to announce that this Friday 12th July we're opening a brand new COOK shop in Sanderstead! Please do come down in the first few days of opening for lots of tasters and possibly a balloon or two (huge excitement). Or if you're not in the area but know someone who is then please do tell them about us.
If you're planning summer days out and are pencilling in visits to National Trust properties, then here's a reminder of why your children might not thank you for it (courtesy of a bit of English homework from Sidney aged 11 (right), the soon-to-be-disowned son of Mary, one of our brilliant graphic designers) ...
Bored at the National Trust by Sidney Holmes
Most people go out to the beach or a swimming pool etc but our family insist on going to the National Trust property. These are so boring, because my Mum spends hours reading all the signs in the house or garden and never misses a single one. My Dad just enjoys taking us there because he knows we don’t like them. But then he gets bored when Mum takes too long in the houses. Probably the worst experience of going to a National Trust property was when we went to Winston’s Churchill’s old house...
