Entertaining the grandchildren can be difficult, so we’ve teamed up with Merlin Entertainments, a global leader in attraction operations, to help with those grandparenting duties.


What can you win?

We’ve got two year-long Merlin Platinum Passes, worth £299 each, to give away – and every entrant will get a discount for Merlin passes too.

These will easily help entertain the grandkids, allowing them – and you – to enjoy unlimited rides, attractions, and shows at all of Merlin’s UK iconic attractions, including Chessington World of Adventures Resort, Alton Towers Resort and LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort.

The kids will love spending a day out… and you’ll love seeing their smiles.

A diverse career has seen Jayne launch websites for popular magazines, collaborate with top brands, write regularly for major publications including Yahoo! and The Daily Telegraph, create a podcast, and also write a tech column for Women’s Own.

Her passion for technology began at age 11 when she received a BBC Micro computer one Christmas and became obsessed with beating Chuckie Egg (if you know, you know) and writing simple computer programmes. As her family’s IT department, when she isn’t writing or geeking out about some new tech, she can be found on the floor of her son’s bedroom putting together his latest gaming set-up or helping her dad understand how cloud computing works. Jayne is determined to make technology accessible for everyone because she believes technology should enhance life, not hinder it.

Jayne lives in Kent with a shepsky, her husband and her son, who is attempting to teach her the ways of TikTok, Aston Villa and anime. A keen neurodivergent ally after her son was diagnosed as autistic five years ago, when Jayne does have some rare downtime she enjoys yoga, reading, going to musicals and attempting to emulate Beyonce (poorly) in street dance classes.
