Stretton grandmother cooking with gas after winning 'ultimate garden party' - complete with DJ

Maisie Jeynes 12th Sep, 2017

A GRANDMOTHER from Rugby has won the ultimate barbecue.

Myra Duffy, from Stretton Under Fosse, has landed herself a brand new Weber barbecue and goodies to host a garden party – including a DJ, lighting and catering.

Myra won the prize completely unexpectedly after buying some Aunt Bessie’s wedges. Unbeknownst to her, by buying the frozen food and swiping a supermarket loyalty card, she entered the competition and was chosen as the winner.

Now she is set to invite family and friends round for a final end-of-summer celebration.

Myra said: “I honestly can’t wait to host the barbecue. It’s amazing to think we’re going to be having the best party, without having to organise a thing!”
