THE Mercury is looking for an extraordinary dad who has gone above and beyond the call of fatherly duty.

We have joined forces with the Grand Pier to recognise one special man who has gone the extra mile and deserves some recognition.

We are looking for that remarkable someone who has done something really fantastic for their child or children.

If your dad fits the bill then tell us all about it in time for Fathers’ Day.

In return, the winner will be able to enjoy a day out to the fantastic Grand Pier in Weston.

A family of four will be able to savour lunch in The Boardwalk Café on the seafront attraction, before spending a £50 voucher on the huge array of rides.

They will also be pictured in the Mercury the week before Fathers’ Day.

Pier co-owner Kerry Michael said: “We wanted to join forces with the Mercury in time for the special date in the calendar that marks the great things that fathers do.

“We all know that there are thousands of dads out there who deserve some special recognition for the great things they do for their children every day of the week.

“But we are looking for that extraordinary father – someone who has gone the extra mile for their children and done something really special.

“We can help give them the recognition they deserve and a chance to enjoy a great family day out together on the pier.”

To enter the competition write to us with as many details as possible about your dad and what makes him special.

You can send the information to Fathers Day Competition, Weston, Worle & Somerset Mercury, 32 Waterloo Street, Weston-super-Mare, BS231LW or email Please include a daytime telephone number.

The closing date for entries is 9am on June 8. Usual Archant rules apply and the editor’s decision is final.
