Couples to Lock their Love in Shrewsbury

Romance is in the air in Shrewsbury as couples are invited to seal their love in time for Valentine's Day using a one-off 'love lock'. The love lock craze, which started in Paris and has now swept the globe, is being embraced by Shrewsbury BID who will this week launch a competition to find 25 romantic couples to lock their love. Winners of the competition will win a red, heart-shaped padlock, which they can add their names to.

Ann Ditella, Shrewsbury BID Board Director and owner of Porterhouse said: "Shrewsbury is a truly romantic place to visit and stay, with plenty of secret shuts and passages to walk through and steal a kiss, relaxing riverside walks and we even have a Moroccan spa. At night there are cosy restaurants and bars, where couples can enjoy cocktails and dinner and plenty of unique and independent places to stay in for a wonderful weekend away."

To make your romantic mark on Shrewsbury find Original Shrewsbury on Facebook and Twitter and enter the competition to win a #oneofflovelock.
