The three accepted proposals will come from those who have planned the most creative and unique ideas

Leading providers of vintage London buses, RedRoutemaster, has reported on a Valentine’s Day competition offered by Wincanton Racecourse in Somerset and the Western Gazette.

Romantics who are considering popping the question on Valentine’s Day this year could win the chance to propose in style at the Somerset horse racing track. The prestigious Bathwick Tyres Kingwell Hurdle Raceday could be the perfect backdrop to a dream proposal. The racecourse has stated that they will confidentially assist with the planning and delivery of the three best proposal ideas. The entrants will be put forward by Western Gazette readers.

The three accepted proposals will come from those who have planned the most creative and unique ideas to make the racecourse the destination where they ask the question. No matter whether it’s covering the ring in roses, customising a horse blanket or by racecourse flash mob, the Wincanton team have stated they will help to ensure perfect delivery. The three winners will also receive half price wedding venue discounts, should they decide to make Wincanton Racecourse the venue for the wedding.

As experts in wedding hire, RedRoutemaster took a keen interest in the news. A spokesperson from the company made the following statement: “A proposal at Wincanton Racecourse would not only be quirky, but also quintessentially British. Horse racing has been a big part of British culture for hundreds of years and for those who love the races, Wincanton Racecourse would make a perfect wedding proposal destination.

“Those who decide to use Wincanton Racecourse as a venue for their special wedding day may want to continue with a traditional British theme. At RedRoutemaster, we provide stunning vintage London buses to get you and your entire wedding party to the venue on time. If you want a truly British wedding, a bright red double decker bus and a racecourse would make the ideal combination.”
