Lucky Winner Joanne Lloyd-Aziz from Leatherhead has won our Fabulous competition!
The Deepdene Trail's competition to win a five night holiday to Washington D.C. for two people courtesy of Kuoni has been won by Joanne Lloyd-Aziz from Leatherhead!
The competition, run this year to celebrate the opening of The Trail, links the infamous 'Hope Diamond' currently residing in the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C. with Thomas Hope's landscape and story as described around The Deepdene Trail in Dorking.
Thomas's family name was given to the exquisite diamond whilst it was owned by Thomas's brother, Henry Phillip Hope in the early 1800's.
Councillor Vivienne Michael, Leader of Mole Valley District Council said, "Congratulations Joanne, we wish you a fabulous trip to Washington D.C. We are very grateful to Kuoni for all their support for the Deepdene Trail project and, in particular, for partnering with us in this competition. The Trail is now open and we are so pleased to hear how everyone is enjoying exploring this wonderful, tranquil green space. There will be more activities and events taking place there in the coming months so, please, be on the look out for those."
Joanne Lloyd-Aziz exclaimed, "I can't believe I've won - I never win anything! I'm so excited about going to Washington D.C. and we will definitely go and see the Hope Diamond whilst there."
Derek Jones, Managing Director of Kuoni commented, "We are very proud of our involvement with The Deepdene Trail and this competition is an ideal way of demonstrating our partnership and commitment to the project. We wish Joanne a wonderful holiday in Washington."
