Christmas shopping worries were eased for three lucky people when they won kids' bikes from Falmouth Cycles this week.

Gill Williams, Karen Crockford and Frances Copper collected their BMX bikes from the shop last week, after winning a competition run by The Packet.

Gill, a lucky lady who has won previous packet competitions, said: “I'm just over the moon, it's really great, and I'll give the bike to my grandson.”

Karen said: “It's for one of my children, and they'll be delighted.”

Frances said: “It's for one of my four daughters. I'm absolutely ecstatic, I've never won anything like this in my life.”

Derek Heelis, owner of Falmouth Cycles, said: “It's our way of getting young people out on their bikes at Christmas time.

"Too many get computer games and phones, it's good for them to get on their bikes, to stay fit and healthy, and hopefully this will encourage them to get a bike for themselves.”
