The Ship in Monkseaton Village was entered into a World Cup Promo competition by Paul Blakey (Newlandmedia Ltd) The winners would receive £ 10,000 worth of audio visual equipment for their establishment allowing them to show TV sporting events, music videos, run digital signage to promote their business showing menus, promotions/special offers etc.


The competition was run by Midwich one of the UK’s biggest AV Distributors. Paul Blakey from Newlandmedia Ltd (suppliers and installers of professional audio visual solutions) lives locally to the Ship Public House, “as it is a privately run family business I have seen the owners Jonnie and Vikki transform and improve the Ship with hard work and determination over the last few years and thought they were deserving of this prize.”


Thinking no more of this competition as Paul has never won a thing, he received a call from Midwich. Newlandmedia’s account manager Matthew explaining that Paul had indeed won this huge prize and he should inform the owners of the Ship. As you can imagine Jonnie and Vikki were stunned but over the moon. Paul has also donated the installation of this equipment by Newlandmedia’s engineers.


“I am over the moon for Jonnie and Vikki, they work so hard and it was just a pleasure to see their faces when I told them they had won this competition.” Paul Blakey
