Congratulations to David James, the winner of the Christmas hamper competition, for his poem ‘The Shop on The Strand’ celebrating the community spirit behind our shop.
David’s entry wasn’t just a poem he came in early last Sunday and did a fabulous reading of it for us. He’s going to come back and do it again and we will video it so you can see his genius in action. – Thank you David you made us cry, laugh and feel tremendous pride.
All the entries were brilliant, lots of poems and heartwarming anecdotes so we chose our favourites as our prize winning runners up. Congratulations to Alyson Parkes, Marj James, Jenny Simpkins, Louise Lewis, Kay Peacey and Jerry Brewer.
