Wisbech grandmother Jenny Badcock was crowned the selfie champion in a social media competition to promote the town. The Horsefair Shopping Centre invited shoppers to take a selfie when visiting the centre. They were encouraged to post it on the centre’s Facebook page, with a new smartphone the prize for the person whose selfie received the most likes. The ‘Horsefair Selfies’ competition was aimed to encourage people to show their support for town centre businesses by being “seen” in Wisbech. Winner was Jenny Badcock, whose photo received an impressive 60 likes. She won an LG Optimus L5 II smartphone, worth more than £150, donated by the Horsefair’s Argos store. Centre manager, Kevin Smith, said: “We were delighted with the selfies that we received. People really got into the spirit of it.”
