Firstly, thank you all so much for getting involved and helping to decorate our beautiful village for Easter, it’s been fantastic to see everyone’s creations whether they’ve entered the competition or not.

All the entries have been great, and it’s made Val and John’s job of judging them a real challenge. They’ve chosen their winners based on the love and effort put into creating them. The winners are:

Under 7’s: Doug and Lily

7 – 15’s: Eva Jones

15 up: Glynis D

Prizes will be delivered tomorrow!

Thank you to Val and John K for judging for us, and big thanks once again to everyone for joining in and making this very strange Easter a special one for us all.

Thanks and stay safe, Rosie
