Would you like to road test the New Ford S Max and Galaxy and have a fab day out at The Grove hotel in Herts?

Following on from the wonderful Mumsnet reviewers back in December 2009, Ford want to invite 8 other mumsnetters to combine a test drive of the updated and restyled new S-MAX and new Galaxy with a fab family day out at The Grove Hotel in Hertfordshire on May 8th.

The lucky testers will be able to enjoy The Grove's spectacular facilities including use of kids' club as well as a full demo of both cars and a test drive. There'll be refreshments and a delicious lunch at this stunning venue set in the glorious Hertfordshire countryside. Ford are also throwing in a free manicure (or equivalent) for all the mumsnet testers and you will also be able to use the spa facilities eg pool and jacuzzi but if you want other treatments these will need to be paid for.

In addition these 8 families will be entered into a draw to have the chance to take part in an additional 3 week test drive (the car will be delivered after the event so noone has to drive two cars home

Everyone who volunteers must be available on May 8th, have a driving licence that's been valid for at least 3 years and be happy to have photos and video taken that may be used on Mumsnet and elsewhere.

All the testers will be asked to come back on Mumsnet and tell everyone about the day. Those selected for the extended test drive will also be asked to make a short video diary of their test and offer feedback on Mumsnet twice a week for the three weeks they have the car. Once they've completed their videos and feedback, the extended testers will also receive £100 of John Lewis.

Thanks and good luck

I bet they chose them because they said they wanted to buy a new car.

At least I was honest. I just wanted a free day out!



DaftApeth Wed 28-Apr-10 21:09:45

Chabby, I said we wanted to buy 2 new cars (which is true) but still didn't get chosen sad

Have fun everyone. Don't prang anything grin

MrsWeasley Wed 28-Apr-10 22:11:19

Oh Thank you AnnMumsnet. DH(our driver) is very excited.

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 28-Apr-10 22:39:16

Sorry to those who weren't chosen - we did have a lot to choose from....
