It’s time to leave the January blues behind and get in the mood for love! We’ve recently launched a brand new range of padlocks, so to celebrate (and for a bit of fun!) we’re busy creating a dedicated page on our website where you can create your very own ‘love lock’ message to share with a loved one.
A pastime made famous by the thousands of padlocks on Paris’ Pont des Art, ‘love locks’ are often attached to bridges and fences around the world to mark the love shared between two people. The tradition has hit the headlines again recently, as Paris officials made the decision to remove all 45 tonnes worth of padlocks from its iconic bridge, in a move to save its architecture. So, that’s why instead of encouraging a potentially-bridge-damaging activity, we’ve come up with an online alternative!
Our love lock tool will allow you to choose a lock, pick a destination and bridge from a list of love-inspired cities, and write your very own message to go on your lock. Whether your love lock is for your partner, best friend, parent or even the dog – don’t forget to share on Twitter or Facebook and spread the love!
And one last thing… everyone who creates a love lock and shares on Twitter or Facebook will be entered into a competition to win a SuperBreak trip for two to Paris! Although you’ll no longer be able to make a real-life love lock on Pont des Arts, you’ll still get to enjoy the ambience of this truly romantic city.
We’ll soon have full details of the competition, so be sure to keep an eye on our Twitter feed for entry details!
