Yorkshire Day winner celebrates with 'By Eck' hamper!


Congratulations to the winner of our recent Yorkshire Day hamper competition: Sally Hill Johnston from Goole.

In order to be in with a chance of winning a Farmer Copley’s 'By 'Eck' hamper full of delicious goodies, worth £65, which was offered in celebration of Yorkshire Day, entrants had to visit our Facebook page and tell us their favourite thing about the county and why.

Here’s a selection of just some of the 70 entries we received, which showcase the great reasons why our followers choose to live in, work in and visit Yorkshire.

  • “Definitely Whitby. It's a place I go to time after time - even love the sound of the seagulls - it's the sound of Whitby! The Abbey is a 'must' to visit every time - and every time I have to count the steps to make sure they are all there.” Sue Pigg
  • “It's fab for foodies - as well as traditional Yorkshire puddings and roast beef, there are cheeses and ales, food festivals, and if you like fine dining, Yorkshire has more Michelin stars than Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside and the whole of the North East put together. Pretty impressive.” Gemma Hewson
  • “The amazing architecture! I’ve been an honorary Yorkshire lass for 11 years now (originally from the other side of them there hills) and every day I’m finding beautiful buildings that I haven't noticed before.” Lauren Pilkington
  • “I'm always struck by how warm and friendly people from Yorkshire are. I often visit this beautiful county and hope to do so many times more!” Sandra D Lane

All of comments were fantastic, however there was only one that could be crowned the winner and Sally’s - a creative Yorkshire themed acrostic – was voted the favourite amongst our team.

Here’s her entry for reference:

Y - Y go anywhere else?

O - Oh so beautiful

R - Radiant Scenery

K - Kindhearted people

S - Scrumptious food

H - Happiest place on Earth

I - Idyllic Environment
