SHOPPERS are being offered the chance to win a year's worth of free meals by the Westgate Social.

For each of the next four weeks, one trader in the food hall will offer a prize of 52 free meals to a hungry participant. 

The dates for the competition are:

  •  8 October: Tommi’s Burgers, 
  • 15 October: Benito’s Hat, 
  • 22 October: Ned’s Noodle Bar, 
  • 29 October: Salt ‘n’ Sauce fish and chips

For a chance to win, entrants need to visit Westgate Oxford on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and follow the entry instructions. 

Brendan Hattam, general manager at Westgate Oxford, said: “We love each one of our Social Street Food traders, and can’t imagine a better prize than 52 weeks of delicious food. We imagine this will be really popular with the people of Oxford, and can’t wait to meet the lucky winners.”

It's the latest effort to boost the profile of the Social, which was labelled a 'forgotten' part of the centre by shoppers and traders earlier this year. 

A new sign, lighting and outdoor tables and chairs have been installed as a way of tempting more customers through the door.
