We all think our mums are one in a million and now the Mearns Leader, in conjunction with the the Ship Inn, is giving you the chance to tell the world why.

This year, Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, March 10, and to celebrate we are running a fantastic competition to show just how much you care.

We want you to write and tell us why your mum deserves to have a wonderful meal on Mothering Sunday at t-e Ship Inn.

Is your mum involved in a lot of charity work or volunteer in the local community? Has she soldiered on through tough times? Or is she just always there with some motherly advice whenever you need her?

To win a £100 meal voucher for The Ship Inn’s superb restaurant, The Captain’s Table, all you have to do is explain why your mum deserves the title of Most Marvellous Mum.

The Captain’s Table specialises in fresh, locally-caught fish and seafood, and steaks from their Aberdeen butcher. With an extensive menu and wine list. You’ll be sure to find something to tantalise your tastebuds while looking out over stunning harbour views.

To enter, tell us in less than 100 words why your mum is so special. The Most Marvellous Mum, as deemed by the judges, will be the winner.

You can submit your entries to The Mearns Leader Office, 12 Ann Street, Stonehaven, AB30 2ER. Make sure your entry includes your name, age and a phone number on we can contact you (or your parents).

Closing date for entries is Sunday, March 3, and the winner will be announced on Thursday, March 7.
