A hopeless admirer has tried to woo their neighbour by leaving her a note declaring ‘I will always love you’ on her doorstep along with two frankfurter sausages. 

Elleanor Holland, 25, from Barnoldswick, Lancashire, was forced to explain to her ‘shocked’ boyfriend how she had no idea who it was. 

She was passed the bemusing contents of a white envelope by her elderly neighbour who spotted it outside her house on Saturday morning. 

The secret admirer’s hand-written note was scribbled on creased white paper and was accompanied by the bizarre gift of two jumbo hot dog sausages.

Elleanor, who is a young people’s support worker, insists she has no idea who would leave her such a strange package but suspects it could be a misguided ‘town bachelor’ on the hunt for love. 

Luckily, partner of one year Adam Greenway, 32, hasn’t felt threatened by the peculiar approach and Eleanor said it left her in fits of laughter rather than feeling uneasy.   

Her only explanation for his inclusion of the two meaty treats would be if they were for her three-year-old Hungarian Vizsla, Teddy. 

Elleanor said: ‘I’m pretty sure it’s not anybody I know. Well, I hope not. I’ve asked everybody and even Adam. There might be a town bachelor going round.

‘There were two jumbo hot dogs you get in glass jars. I threw them away because I didn’t want to give them to the dog in case it was a crazy person trying to poison him. 

‘My neighbour was quite worried about it, but I reassured her it’d be a joke and she shouldn’t worry about it.

‘Adam was quite shocked, so I explained that I don’t know [why I’ve got it], and he was laughing. We’ve all seen the funny side. It’s just a bit of fun. I hope it’s nothing more than that anyway.’

She’s even offered the mystery man a few tips for his next crush, calling for him to switch the sausages with plane tickets for a holiday – or at least his phone number.  

Elleanor said: ‘There’s definitely more romantic ways to go about declaring your love. If they’re looking for somebody they should at least include their mobile number. 

‘They should definitely leave out the sausages. Maybe replace them with plane tickets. We could do with some of them after the year we’ve had.’

Elleanor’s Facebook post said: ‘And some will still argue romance is dead. Does the sender of this want to contact me?’ 

She said Facebook users found it hilarious and she’s pleased it’s given some people something to smile about. 

Elleanor added: ‘We live in one of those towns where all they talk about on the Facebook group is dog poo, so at least this made people laugh and cheered them up. I just hope I don’t get another one anyway.’   

When Elleanor explained to Adam that she didn't know who it was or why it was sent, she said 'he was laughing', adding: 'We've all seen the funny side. It's just a bit of fun. I hope it's nothing more than that anyway'
