Fancy spending two nights with your favourite person at the (deservedly) much-loved Walkersons Hotel & Spa. This getaway sits in the hills of of the Mpumalanga highlands just beyond the picturesque hamlet of Dullstroom, and the new owners have marked it 30th anniversary with a mini-revamp. It’s a hotel that’s just full of charm, with glorious gardens, gorgeous food (trust us, the afternoon scones on the verandah are a highlight … we’d visit just for this treat), and is just a two-and-a-half hour drive away, making it the perfect weekend escape. Mountain bike. Have a spa treatment. Order more scones. Bliss! It’s one of our prizes … and well worth spending a little time voting to win this one! Details:


A R20 000 SPAR shopping voucher. We could faint with excitement! There isn’t a thing we want and can’t find it at SPAR. Breakfast for the the kids … easy. Fresh salads and hot-from-the-oven breadrolls for lunch.  Got that. Heat and eat dinners (so many to choose from) where we just can’t be bothered to cook. And posh ingredients when we want to show off at a dinner party.  The Spar Freshline berries and yoghurts for when we’re feeling healthy, and Freshline Swissrolls when we want a treat. IMAGINE loading up your trolley with all this and more, and then just swiping SPAR voucher card to pay. One voter’s going to be able to do just that.  Then they’ll pop over to and click on the recipe tab, where they’ll find loads of recipes using SPAR products .. think special treats as well as  every day faves like quick breakfast date and bananans smoothies, and Frank’s Spaghetti. Suprise for the kids’ dinner. Also impressive dinner-party dishes, too … with minimal effort but maximum impress-the-guests appeal! Details:

One reader will walk away with this prize that will have her bookclub friends green with envy. Details:
