Eternal flame: Manchester bingo club offer 'special night' to city's longest-married pair

Do you know the longest-married couple in Manchester?

That is the question being asked by Mecca Bingo Club this Valentine’s Day, as they seek to reward the special couple with an ‘exclusive and fun-packed’ evening at their Hyde Road venue.

The lucky victors will also be presented with champagne and flowers, and will be able to feel smug that – on a day for couples to express their love – theirs is the flame that has burnt the longest.

Helena, general manager at the branch, described the prize as an opportunity to ‘have a great night out with the love of your life’.

“Valentine’s Day is the most romantic day of the year and an important day to spend with that special person in your life,” she said.

 “So we thought why not invite them into our club to receive a special gift and provide everything they need for a great night out together.

“Bingo brings people together and we know that some of our members have been together for many decades so it’ll be fantastic to award them or other long-standing couples from Manchester with a special celebration.”

Those looking to enter the competition should take a photocopy of their marriage certificate to the front desk at Mecca Manchester, or email it to [email protected].

All applications should be entered by February 8, and entrants are asked to include their contact details with submissions.
