Christmas Competition

I wanted to give an update on the 2018 Christmas Competition. We had twelve good submissions by 17th December. The articles have now been judged, and three were very close. I want to thank everyone who submitted an article. It was a shame that we didn’t have more submissions from ladies.

I want to thank David Warren for his articles, and I particularly liked the poem by Tony Harris, but the winner was … Andrew Toye. A Waitrose hamper will be on its way to Andrew.

Thank you again for all those who submitted an article and hopefully next year you too could win 🙂

    Congratulations to Andrew Toye.

  • Well said, David: Congratulations to Andrew Toye.

    And thanks to Tahir for setting up the competition. I’ve one suggestion which others may like to comment on, about the dates. Half the population is pretty busy, getting ready for Christmas — and looking forward to the relaxed days immediately after. How would it be if the comp closed on Twelfth Night, instead of just before the big day? That may well be why there were relatively few entries from the ladies. . . . !

    I agree with Roger, I have to say when I half-attentively noticed the competition being touted I assumed that would be the idea: something to do whilst slumped post-turkey (given that there’s no Christmas Doctor Who this year). I was susprised to see a winner being announced already.

    It was touching to see Jo at the cenotaph because she so visibly represented a different generation.
