Giving a window on people's hearts
Romantic messages were under the spotlight at a Valentine's event in Bath.
Precious Love, a jewellery and accessories boutique at New Bond Street, asked customers to write a romantic message to someone special in their life and display it in the shop window.
There were messages from admirers, to other halves and even to parents.
Local author, Cathy Hopkins, was the judge, with her credentials including the fact that she has written 64 novels for teenagers, including her most recent Love at Second Sight.

The winner got £100 of gift vouchers for the shop.
There were about 30 entries with messages including "Roses are red, violets are blue, make sure it's a diamond, or it's the end of you" and "Stand in the drizzle by the love heart shop window, my poem is yours." In the end the winning message was "Love is not someone to live with, it's finding someone you can't live without."
Part-owner of the shop, Tracey Dawson said that the competition idea was "a joint effort between all our managers.
"We thought it would be a lovely idea.
"We are also running something like this for Mother's Day."
