One lucky Surrey Life reader will enjoy a very special Christmas treat this year, as the winner of our exclusive October competition prize, courtesy of award-winning travel agent Haslemere Travel.

Primary schoolteacher Tanya Blackburn, from Charlwood, will visit the historic city of Vilnius for the very first time in December, with her husband Sam.

The prize includes flights for two people with AirBaltic to the city of Vilnius, a two-night stay in four-star, luxury hotel Mabre Residence and a visit to the city’s celebrated Christmas markets.

Run in association with leading independent travel agent Haslemere Travel and the Lithuanian National Tourism Office, the competition received a record 1,500 entries.

“We were delighted to present this magnificent prize to Tanya – it’s a beautiful, historic city and very picturesque in the winter snow especially,” said Gemma Antrobus, managing director, Haslemere Travel.

The expert team at Haslemere Travel was also in a celebratory mood, having just been awarded gold at the British Travel Awards, with the prize for Small Travel Retailer of the Year 2011.
