EACH week we are giving you the chance to win a fabulous festive treat to grace your table and make your Christmas the best ever.

The Henley Standard has teamed up with some of the area’s top food retailers to bring you a variety of festive food treats to win. So far the prizes have included luxurious hampers.

This week’s prize is a glorious Christmas turkey sponsored by Gabriel Machin butchers.

The shop in Market Place is thought to have been a butchers some 20 years prior to it being taken over by Mr Machin in 1881. Machin’s has since won awards for its home-made sausages and has its own smokehouse in the rear of the shop.

It has been highly praised by a number of celebrity chefs and supplies local celebrity chef Antony Worrall Thompson with meat for his restaurants. As well as selling meat products, the shop also has a game licence and stocks fresh fish.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning a turkey worth up to £75 is correctly answer the following question:

Q: When did Mr Machin take over the butcher’s shop?

Send it, together with your name, address and daytime telephone number to: Turkey competition, Henley Standard, Caxton House, 1 Station Road, Henley, RG9 1AD.

The winner will be the sender of the first correct entry to be selected at random after the closing date of Friday, December 11.

The prize is non-refundable and there is no cash alternative. The editor’s decision is final.
