Sixtyplusurfers Competition

Win a One For All Entertainment Bundle for the TV

One For All Evolve TV Remote

February probably takes the prize for being the coldest, most miserable month of the year (apart from Valentine’s Day, of course) but it can also be the cosiest and best month for catching up on old TV series, watching great DVD box sets or simply your favourite shows on the box.

So, we’ve teamed up with One For All, experts in TV entertainment accessories, to give you the chance to win a package of new tech to improve your TV viewing. One lucky reader will win:

A New Evolve TV remote

The humble remote control has now turned into the most important controller of all our home entertainment devices. The new universal
Evolve remote from One For All will not only replace your broken or lost TV remote but is really easy to set up. We’re giving away an Evolve 4 that has an activity button which allows you to control all your TV and audio equipment as if they were one, so there is no need to switch between devices.

The remote is guaranteed to be compatible with every single TV brand. The Watch TV activity button controls your TV and set top box simultaneously, while the Watch Movie activity button enables simultaneous control of your TV, Blu-ray player and audio system. And there is an all OFF power button that turns all your devices off with one touch at the end of the evening.

An Amplified Indoor Aerial with Automatic Gain Control

One For All Amplified Indoor Aerial

The top-of-the-range
SV9495 from One For All,  is an amplified indoor aerial that can be used flat, standing or wall mounted with no loss of signal quality. The aerial is capable of receiving all your favourite channels, whether it is Freeview television or digital radio.

It will also give you the optimum signal at any time using its clever new Automatic Gain Control system. So all you have to do is to plug it in and start watching.

A New Voice Clear Technology enhanced set of TV headphones

One For All Voice Clear Technology Headphones

The
HP 1030  from One For All is a set of wireless TV headphones with a range up to 100 metres with crystal clear sound that is free from background noise with powerful 40mm speaker drivers that mean you won’t miss a single word. So, now you can watch your favourite TV series, a football match, listen to radio, day or at night, undisturbed and without disturbing others.

Enjoy hours of TV entertainment with the extra-large closed over-the-ear cushioned ear-cups that create a seal reducing sound leakage and providing isolation from intruding background noise. There is no need to adjust the headband as it shapes automatically to your head. The on-cap control buttons allow you to adjust volume directly on the headphones and thanks to the charging station and fast rechargeable batteries gives you up to 12 hours of uninterrupted TV listening.

The month of February need never be miserable again!

A Churchill Retirement apartment is ideal for the young at heart, looking to downsize from a large family home, which may become costly and difficult to maintain as they get older. With an apartment at a Churchill Lodge you still own your apartment, but the onsite management company, Millstream Management Services, provides a dedicated Lodge Manager responsible for all maintenance, service and ongoing management of the Lodge, leaving you free to enjoy doing the things you want to do.

A Churchill apartment gives you all the same independence of your family home but with added security and peace of mind. You can bring small pets with you when you move in and continue to do your own shopping and cooking, guest suites are available to book at every lodge for friends and family to stay in. But what really makes our Lodges a unique place is the ready-made social life that is open to you from the moment you move in. You can attend coffee mornings, fish and chip suppers and a host of other regular social events, or visit the Owners’ Lounge whenever you like to spend time getting to know your neighbours. Many Churchill developments also include sociable coffee bars, roof terraces and landscaped gardens where you’ll often find someone to chat to.
