We are excited to announce that, after much deliberation by Mick Kirkby-Geddes, who had the unenviable and difficult task of choosing three winning entries, the winners can be revealed.

Congratulations to:
• Ellie Jackson, aged 5 – first prize winner, receiving a metal sculpture of her mermaid, created by Mick. It was selected due to her artistic talent, as well as being well designed to be made into a sculpture and, who doesn’t love mermaids?

• Mia Russell, aged 6 – winning 2 books kindly donated by Read. bookshop, Holmfirth. Mick liked the square shape of the fish – slightly “querky”

• Charlie Parker, aged 11 – for his colourful octopus, winning the fish shaped chocolates, donated by the Reluctant Grocer at the Royal Oak, Upperthong. Charlie put a poignant message on the back which caught Mick’s eye, “say no to plastic”

19 talented children submitted a total of 25 colourful creations of sea creatures in our Under the Sea competition with donations totalling almost £100.

A huge thank you to all who brightened our windows with their artistic talent and helped to add to our windows fund with their generous donations.

We have a certificate for everyone who entered, please get in touch for the best way to receive this either by messaging us on FB or texting Cath on 07957 293938.

We would also like to say a massive thank you to our supporters of the hall, namely Mick Kirkby-Geddes for creating the winning prize (which I’m sure you will agree is a very special prize); To James and Louise at Read. Holmfirth bookshop and finally to Chris at The Royal Oak at Upperthong.

The pictures are all back up and displayed in one of our windows, let us know if you would like yours back, along with your certificate!
