A Market Rasen couple enjoyed their first ever Valentine meal together after winning a competition.

Ian and Jessie Mawer were delighted to win the prize of dinner for two at The Kings Head, which the Tealby pub donated for the Valentine draw at Tesco Market Rasen, in aid of the store’s charities - Diabetes UK and the British Heart Foundation.

The couple, who ran the Gordon’s Arms in the town for a number of years, are more used to dishing up special dinners than sitting down to enjoy them.

“It is the first time we have had a Valentine’s meal, I am usually cooking it,” said Jessie.

And Ian was particularly pleased with Tesco’s choice of charity this year.

“I always support Diabetes UK as I am diabetic myself,” he said.

“We try to support all the local shops when they do things for charity too.”

And the store’s community champion Jenny Stimson was kept busy all day wrapping flowers for customers in return for a donation to the charity fund.
