Kelly's all in a Twizy!
Kelly Hibbard from Keynsham will be turning heads wherever she goes after winning the incredible prize of a new electric two seater Renault Twizy.
The 35-year-old collected her fantastic prize in SouthGate Bath's shopping centre on Saturday, much to the astonishment of passing shoppers, after winning a prize draw run through the summer to mark the launch of the eye-catching vehicle.
She received her keys from Alan Smith from Renault UK, Paul Mitchell, director of Renault Operations at Platinum Renault, Trowbridge and Simon Pullen, SouthGate Estate Director at a handover in the city centre, before driving off to enjoyable economical and environmental motoring.
Kelly, who works as a team leader for an accident management company, said: "I was so surprised as I never win anything. When I found out I'd won, I was on my own at home and was so chuffed that I was jumping around the living room!

"On the day we collected the keys, we had great weather, so we drove around Bath in it and went to see friends. It's so practical for city driving and thanks to its turning circle, it's easy to park.
"We've had so much fun driving around in it and felt like royalty! People were beeping at us, smiling, looking and pointing. We were waved at by bus drivers, little kids were asking their parents 'what's that?' and everyone was excited to see us!"
Kelly is keeping her new Renault Twizy in her garage which means she can charge the battery from a normal three-point plug for just over £1 a time – much cheaper than filling up with fuel at the pumps.
Paul Mitchell, Dealer Principal, said: "We're so thrilled to be able to hand the keys to the Renault Twizy to a worthy winner.
"The two-seater Renault Twizy really is a trailblazing vehicle and is just perfect for nipping around cities such as Bath.
"Kelly's prize is worth just over £7,000 and is the third in the range of Renault's electric vehicle range.
"The unique set-up means Kelly will be able to drive herself with her passenger sitting behind her. Alternatively, of course, if she's using her new Renault Twizy to shop, then there's plenty of space for her purchases!
"While we were handing over the prize to Kelly, there was an incredible buzz around the car with everyone wanting to have a look or to have their picture taken with it. Shoppers were interested in its low running costs and Renault's unique battery lease scheme, as well as wanting to know about its top speed of 50mph and range."
