Why you all want a stove

farmers weekly readers are obviously keen to win a multi-fuel fire – we were inundated with entries for the Morso stove competition.

Contestants had to give a reason for wanting one of the three super Morso Panther Cleanheat Convector 2140 stoves and most were very practical – "to warm my cold, damp farmhouse".

However, others were feeling a different kind of chill, like the 72-year-old who wanted one because he is "too old to cuddle up to the missis to keep warm".

A Yorkshire lass wrote: "I need something sexy, warm and good-looking in my house" and a Herefordshire woman said: "Single mum, cold and lonely – seeks Morso Panther to make life cosy".

The winners, who will each receive a Morso Panther stove were:

&#8226 Mrs M Pagett, Bramshall, Staffs. "I would love to own a Morso because… Its styled for beauty and made for duty."

&#8226 Mrs JM Felgate, Datchingham, Suffolk. "I would love to own a Morso because… I could warm my torso with a guarantee on all body parts."

&#8226 Mrs E Nellis, Ugthorpe. North Yorks. "I would love to own a Morso because… I would be in the pink with this Panther."
