Guard house competition winners

Graham and Jane Coombes

Jane and Graham Coombes have won Visit Isles of Scilly's For the Love of Scilly Competition which we ran over the Valentine's weekend. They will enjoy a short break next week at The Guard House on the Garrison, St. Mary's. The couple, from the West Midlands, first visited the Isles of Scilly in July 2007 on a day trip when staying in Cornwall. "We came on the ferry and spent our day exploring St Mary's. The sun shone, we had a wonderful time and left hoping that one day we would return," says Jane.

"Coming to Scilly next week is actually a gift from our daughter," she continues. "She works in Devon and entered the competition. When she won and then subsequently found that she couldn't get the time off work herself, she gave the prize to me and my husband instead, knowing how much we'd wanted to come back. We hope to visit the surrounding islands this time, particularly Tresco to see the Abbey Garden. We enjoy walking and think the scenery on Scilly is wonderful so after a long trek we will probably round off the day in a local pub!"
