Have your say

HAVE you got Wearside’s most Christmassy cat? Or the most decorated dog?

The Echo has teamed up with the Copthorne Hotel, in Newcastle and Dalton Park – the region’s biggest discount retail outlet – for our fabulous festive competition – Animal Crackers.

We are looking for the best-dressed pet this Christmas, with a festive theme. It could be a rabbit as Rudolph, a cracker of a cat or even a festive feathered friend.

One lucky winner wil bag a fantastic prize of a family lunch and shopping treat.

The winner will get a table for six for Sunday lunch at the Copthorne Hotel, a £25 drinks voucher and a £100 shopping voucher to spend at Dalton Park. Lunch at the Copthorne can be taken on any Sunday up until March 31 next year – subject to availability.

The Dalton Park vouchers may be used on any visit to the outlet throughout 2013.

Situated on the cosmopolitan Quayside, with views of the River Tyne and its famous bridges, the Copthorne Hotel Newcastle is the perfect venue for festive celebrations.

The hotel offers 156 guest rooms, as well as a restaurant and a bar. For more information call 222 0333 or e-mail:

For a stunning outfit for the festive season – or gift ideas for friends and family – then a trip to Dalton Park is perfect. Shoppers can choose from a whole range of top brands including Joseph, Jeff Banks, the Body Shop, the Fragrance Shop, Gap outlet and M&S outlet.

Children can also go and meet Santa in his grotto until Christmas Eve and take part in Dalton Park’s special “spend and sparkle” promotion to win a “bauble” prize. For more information, call: 526 6157 or visit:
