When we relaunched thevillage.be earlier this month, we honoured mums with our launch competition.
This time, we’re celebrating dads!!

Not all fathers are ‘dads’, and not all dads are the fathers of the kids they help raise!
So on Father’s Day – 9 June 2019 – we’ll be celebrating all those men who are going a GREAT job raising kids, in whatever family setup they find themselves!

Do you know a dad / dad-to-be who deserves to be honoured? Or maybe you *are* that dad!

Enter our competition before midnight Saturday 8 June to win ALL these great prizes:

  • a delicious cake from local baking goddess Helen at Helen’s Heavenly cakes – choice of sponge and buttercream filling flavours + two additional fillings/toppings
  • a fun outing to indoor family entertainment centre Legenturia in Zaventem, Brussels.
    Choice between:
    • a ‘Playground family voucher’ for up to 4 children (up to the age of 9) and 2 adults
      OR
    • a ‘Fun center voucher’ for 2×15 min laser game for up to 6 people
  • a 3-month premium subscription to babysitting community Babysits, who connect parents to local babysitters

See Terms and conditions at the bottom of the page for more details on the prizes.

What do I need to do?

  • Answer the following questions … CORRECTLY 😉 Pssst, if you’re not sure of the answer, check out the hint
