Search on for number one loom bander

By helen williams, Hoyland Reporter Friday 8th August 2014

DISCOUNT store The Works - which has a shop in Cheapside - is searching for the UK's number one 'loom bander'.

The loom band phenomenon is gripping the nation and the shop wants to crown a master of the craze who will become the face of the business.
Home-made loom bands or bracelets have become this summer's must-have product.

Children can enter the competition to become the brand's 'face of looming' by uploading images of their creations to The Works' Facebook page at


The competition closes at the end of the month.
