In June – July 2016, Kramp UK ran the European Championships campaign for the chance to win an extravagant weekend to Paris. Winners Richard Carpenter and Andrew Jones came joint first in the competition.
Andrew, from KJ Stoneman, and his cousin took a tour of Paris, visiting all of the top spots and finding some unexpected gems along the way. “Paris has some beautiful buildings,” Andrew told us, “One of the best has to be the Academie Nationale De Musique. We didn’t deliberately go looking for this building, we just stumbled upon it and I think that was the best part of our journey. My photo doesn’t do it any justice, the details on this building were incredible.”
Richard from Carpenter Goodwin and his wife followed an itinerary which, similarly to Mr Jones, took them off the beaten track to some interesting spots. But the pair couldn’t resist seeing some of the more popular sights, heading up the Eiffel Tower for a glass of champagne.
Both winners had a fantastic time with Andrew rounding off his experience: “Paris wasn’t a place that I would have picked to go on holiday but I can honestly say that it was a superb weekend. It’s a great city and the people were amazing. I will go there again.”
