A massive thanks to our panel of judges who, despite child-care, work, business and family commitments, very generously gave up their precious time to read and judge all of the excellent poetry entries. Both short-listing and selecting the top three has proven to be very challenging due to the exceptional entries we were very fortunate to receive.
Thank you to all of the poets who participated and kindly decided to share their talents.
The top three poems are as follows:
Winner – ‘The Way It Used To Be’ by Bernie Bickerton of Epsom
Runner up – ‘My Role Model’ by Julie Shackman of Milngavie
Runner up – ‘Silent Voice’ by Neelam Shah of Thornton Heath
Congratulations to Bernie, Julie and Neelam. We will send the book tokens to you all as soon as possible.
