A couple from Arnold who won a combined £90,000 on the Postcode Lottery have said they will tie the knot in Las Vegas after being engaged for 29 years. Denise Bell, 71, and Alan Shaw, 74, are among eight neighbours whose postcode, NG5 6RT of Newton Close, was selected to win.

Each winner received a prize of £30,000, but Denise also had two tickets, meaning she won a total of £60,000 and a total of £270,000 was given to players on the street. And after being engaged for nearly three decades, the couple plan to finally get married.

Alan proposed in Asda while Denise worked as a cashier on the checkouts. They both admitted that life had got in the way and they had delayed getting married several times, but always dreamt of being wed in Las Vegas.

Denise said: “We’ve been together for 32 years and been engaged for 29, and now we’ll get married. I can get my hip done too, I’ve been waiting to have my hip replacement.”

Chris Adams, 47, was another winner of £30,000. He found out about his prize alongside his wife Emma, who said she cannot wait to take their two kids away on a holiday abroad.

Emma said: “The kids are yet to go on an aeroplane, so we’ve been promising them to do so for a long time. Now, that can finally happen.”

He said: “It’s like we’re on that crest of a wave of emotion knowing that you can share it with someone and know that they deserve it too.”

Colin Barrett, 59, was joined by his wife Mandy for the surprise. He said it was nice to see others enjoying their winnings too.

Colin said: “Today has been a lucky day! We are a family on this street and it’s just nice to see other people having a little bit of luck in life.”
