IT was a case of the older the better as far as Angela Davidson from Stevenage was concerned.

The lucky Comet reader had plenty to smile about when she scooped not one but 60 fabulous prizes as the winner of the Stevenage Town Centre Management Company's competition to celebrate Stevenage's 60th birthday which featured in The Comet recently.

Hertbeat fm loaded up its StreetBeat vehicle with a whole array of prizes on Monday that included a TV, DVD player, iPod Nano, O2 mobile phone, wine, chocolates, gift vouchers, fragrances, a hi-fi system and a weekend break for two at the Express by Holiday Inn.

"We wanted to do something special to mark the year of Stevenage's 60th birthday and so we appealed to Stevenage businesses for donations," said town centre manager Tracey Parry.

This is just the start of the diamond anniversary celebrations.
