IT'S a win-win week for Gazette readers!
TK Maxx has £500 of clothes shopping to give away at its newly refurbished Uxbridge store, The Chimes's Jean Genies will give three generations of women a denim makeover and £100 to spend, and Lidl - celebrating the opening of its new Uxbridge store - is back this week with another voucher for you to clip and save cash on your weekly shop.
All you have to do is pick up your Gazette and go online to have a chance of bagging all three!
Unfortunately, shopping is also in the news for the wrong reasons this week, as Armed Forces Art and The Forties Tearoom in The Mall are forced to call it a day in a wrangle over charitable status and business rates. Your reactions have been swift and strong - make sure you see the letters pages.
Neither is it all harmony and sweet music at radio station Hayes FM, as volunteers call a confidence vote in the management.
Also taking others to task are the Mini Road Safety Officers (yes, that's their official title!) of Field End Infant School. Woe betide any parents parking in the wrong place. And up in Harefield a couple of Academy lads had a star-studded week with Ant and Dec.
Marathon season is upon us, but Dom Dalton is not heading for London. Read all about an effort that really does go further...
Tons up for Mary Little and Dorothy Stone, and for centenarians Dorothy and husband William it's a rare double.
We like to share a business success story, and with all the rain lately, Steven Jacobs of Ruislip could be on to a winner. And apprentice Louisa Troughton from Northwood has got her career seemingly all sewn up, courtesy of the Royal Opera House.
We have caught up with all your Red Nose Day antics, and for Hush B and Megan Doyle, Teen Star fame could still beckon.
In sport, Hayes and Yeading are on shaky ground with the Conference, wheelchair tennis star Marc McCarroll is on top form again and Eastcote Hockey Club women have wrapped up the league title.
So a busy week, and the Local Heroes nominations are still coming in thick and fast. Don't miss out; get your Gazette to find out how you can honour your heroes.
