Thank you to those children who entered our programme cover competition. The standard was very high but our judge, Flick Stainthorpe made the very hard decision. The pictures looked great on the programmes. Well done to Charlie Seal & Chloe Wood who won 1st & 2nd prizes respectively :-)
Thank you also to all those organisations/groups who entered floats for the procession. This year's judges was Actress Karen Martin and the prizes went to Mother's & Toddlers with their plight of the pandas theme and to Urban Saints for for best interpretation of the theme with there multi-faceted entry! The standard was very high again this year :-)
