Also look out for our spontaneous reader competitions on page 3 of the daily newspaper and keep an eye out for coupons to send in to win big prizes because the coupons often run once only and we don't want you to miss out.

We sometimes run competitions on our Facebook page and generally all you have to do to enter those is click "like'' or leave a comment on the competition post.

You can also follow us on Twitter to keep up-to-date on what we are giving away as it happens.
