Ham It Up winners announced

THE 10 winners of The Little Butcher's 'Ham It Up' competition were drawn out this morning, December 14.

Contestants were required to collect and fill out coupons from the South Burnett Times newspaper to be eligible to win one of 10 Christmas hams.

The ten lucky winners drawn are Jan Lamborn, Marion Campbell, Kym Hancock, J & W Papworth, Kaye Wolski, Robin Kersten, Terrence Andrews, Edith White, Robyn Naumann and Glenda Thompson.

According to Clinton Stretton, the owner of The Little Butcher, the store is flattered by the many interested contestants.

"It's very good to see so many people get involved. It means everyone's paying attention to the paper, which is great for our business because it's promoting our product,” he said.

"It's also great feedback to see that people are excited to win our products. Hopefully after Christmas everyone gives us good reports on the hams, too.”

Many other customers are already racing in store to get their Christmas hams.

"We've got a lot of hams done already, but we've got a lot of fresh orders yet to come. Everyone is wanting chickens, roast pork, snags and steaks for the barbecue,” he said.

"It's been a very busy time at the shop. Christmas rush is about to hit, and everyone's in the mall because of the rain, too.

"Work barbecues have been happening a lot this week, too. Everyone is having break up parties, so with us supplying the meat, it's been very busy. Everyone is getting a bit tired, but we're doing great and we'll have a good rest over the Christmas break.”
