How to put a special Valentine's Day message in our paper for free

The past year has seen us rely on our loved ones in ways we have never done before.

It has been a tough year for everyone and the love of a special someone has helped so many of us through these difficult times.

Anniversaries, birthdays and countless other events have passed without us being able to celebrate them properly but that does not mean we cannot tell people how we feel about them.

So now, with Valentine’s Day and the season of love upon us, we are offering readers the opportunity to send a short public greeting to their Valentine.

Fill out a simple form online to put a special Valentine's Day message for a loved one in our paper.

All you need to do is fill in this form on our website and we will do the rest. Just tell us your message in 50 words or less, who it is for and who it is from.

Please ensure you use full names, not nicknames. We will also need your contact details. We will not be able to publish any message sent without this information. Once we have the messages, we will then publish them in the last edition before Valentine’s Day.

So do not miss this chance to say a public thank you, love you or miss you to those special people in your life.

Let us all hope that life gets back to normal and we can get together with our family and friends in more normal circumstances later in 2021.
