Last week we felt a bit loved-up and asked our Facebook fans to show off their literary talents and compose a Valentine’s poem. As an extra incentive, we offered our enormous furry friend Edward as a prize!

We were thrilled to have so many participants and had a challenge choosing a winner – apparently there’s no shortage of bards among our fans! First prize went to Faridah Brooker, and here is her winning entry …


There is a place in London Town,
Where no-one ever wears a frown,
Where stylish clothes for girls and boys
Rub shoulders with fun, original toys,
You can have a cuddle with Edward Bear
Whilst someone even cuts your hair!
For 21 years this ‘house of fun’
Has been bringing joy to everyone,
So for all the great things mentioned above’
TROTTERS is the place I love!


Congratulations to Faridah, and to our runners up – Paula, Melissa, and Christine will all ┬áreceive one of Edward’s little bear brothers. You can see their poems and all of the entries on our Facebook page, as well as details of new competitions as they happen.
