Just imagine the look on a loved one’s face or a friend you haven’t seen in ages when you turn up in person.

Or how grandma and granddad will greet the grandkids when they run down the garden path.

Priceless.

And to celebrate we have teamed up with Northern to give five lucky readerts the chance to win a trip to see a loved one, plus a fantastic gift. But hurry. It is for a limited period only. Full details below.

There is a station near you and where you want to go, all over Yorkshire and beyond. Check out Northern destinations and buy tickets - CLICK HERE.

So why take the car, or be stuck in road traffic?

You can roll up by train in next to no time, share great stories, make more memories and save an average of 60 per cent on a range of single fares when you buy in advance and kids travel half price.

You don’t have to make a long journey to give your presence. The friend or family member you want to visit may live just a short trip away.

Of course, you can also get the same great savings whatever your reason to travel – perhaps a trip into the countryside or, when it’s a rainy day, to the city centre.

Days out don’t need to be a big adventure at this time of the year, more a trip to see and do something different.

If you do want to make a longer trip, Northern also has it covered. It operates as far as Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Sunderland, Blackpool and the Lake District. Buy tickets - CLICK HERE.

And we will throw in a free Bettys Yorkshire Treats Gift Tin for you to celebrate when you get there.

Simply tell us, in no more than 100 words, who you want to ‘surprise’ and why.

It may be a long lost relative or an old friend you haven’t seen for a while. Or it could just be a great reason to surprise somebody with your presence.

Your journey route must be served by Northern - check destinations at www.northernrailway.co.uk – from your nearest local station.

All winning visits must also take place by Monday, January 30, 2017, at 5pm.

Our panel of judges will pick the five most deserving, who will win unlimited day travel for a family of four to make the return trip on Northern’s rail services.

Each winner will also get a Bettys Yorkshire Treats Gift Tin – containing a Yorkshire fruit cake portion, Yorkshire shortbread box, and Bettys Tea Room Blend tea bags - to share with their loved one when they arrive.

Winners and those to be visited must agree to publicity, including photography and filming. All parties will therefore be informed ahead of the visit, to organise dates and times.
