I saw an article in the Daily Telegraph on Saturday 2nd November 2008 that stated that there are two competitions that AGA owners can take part in. I lost the details and found it difficult to find them again on the Telegraph and the link from the AGA site goes to the wrong page on the Telegraph site so I am repeating them here. The two competitions are:
1. Finding the oldest AGA in use, prize is a new AGA Cooker.
2. Finding an interesting or unusal AGA Cooker Story.
So taken from the article I quote:
The Daily Telegraph, in conjunction with the legendary cooker company, is looking for the earliest example of the classic stove still in domestic use. And when we find it, its owner will win a brand-new, three-oven, 13 amp electric Aga in the colour of his or her choice.
Alternatively, if you use your Aga – whatever its age – in an interesting way or have any amusing, fascinating or downright odd Aga stories, then tell us and you could win £1,000 worth of Aga cookware.
Judging the competition will be William McGrath, chief executive of the Aga Rangemaster Group, and Laura James, Aga's brand ambassador. Simply send in details of your Aga, your story in 200 words and any pictures you may have, along with your name, address and telephone number, to Laura James, Marketing Dept, Aga, Station Road, Ketley, Telford TF1 5AQ.
To participate in the competition to win a new Aga, entrants must already own an Aga and state the age either exactly or approximately. Aga will verify the age and the owner of the oldest Aga will be deemed to be the winner
To participate in the competition Win £1,000 Worth of Aga Cookware, entrants must either write an account of how they use their Aga in an interesting way or write an amusing, fascinating or unusual account of an incident involving an Aga. Entries must be no more than 200 words long, must be the work of the individual submitting them and must not have been published elsewhere or have won a prize in any other competition. It is the responsibility of each entrant to ensure that no element of their entry infringes the copyright of any third party or any laws. Entries will be judged on composition, entertainment, interest humour and originality.
The prize includes one three-oven gas or 13- amp electric Aga cooker, delivery to a mainland Britain address and standard assembly to an appropriate prepared site. Colour to be chosen from Aga's standard colour palette.
The prize is non-exchangeable and no cash alternative is available. A voucher for the £1,000 prize of cookware may be spent at participating stores. Closing date for receipt of applications is December 31 2008.
