McCarthy & Stone memory lane competition winners

Congratulations to Colin and Joan, our Memory Lane competition winners, who live near Cherrett Court in Ferndown.

A romantic weekend in Paris with his wife in the 1980s is one of Mr Stokes favourite memories and we'll be re-creating their magical trip to the French capital in the new year for them.

The Memory Lane competition, offered one lucky person the chance to have a special memory recreated for them. Mr Stokes’s heart warming story of a special weekend away in Paris with his wife back in the 1980s touched the hearts of the judging panel and those involved wanted the couple to re-live their happy memory in the French capital.

Colin Stokes, who has been married to his wife Joan for over 57 years, was absolutely thrilled to have won.

“When we received the phone call to say we had won the competition, I couldn’t believe it. My wife and I have had a wonderful marriage and I wanted to say thank you to her for the last 62 years. We had an absolutely fantastic time in Paris last time we went and we are really looking forward to visiting the city again.”


Colin and Joan are planning to take their break early next year and are looking forward to taking in many of the wonderful sites the city has to offer.
