  Team Challenge

  • The winning team was Captain Carpet. The Barclaycard team came second.

  Scarecrow Competition Winners

  • The judges, Norman Arnold and Philip Smith, found it extremely difficult to pick a winner from the outstanding figures on display.
  • Adult class:
    • 1st, Betty Feasey's, as a traditional scarecrow it was outstanding, 13, School Lane.
    • 2nd, Peter Soul, Big Ben the flower pot man, as the most novel. 23, Church road.
  • Children's class:
    • 1st, Lily, Archie and Tom Smith, of Park Road, a model the judges called the 'Sunflower Girl', but they believe it was a model of 'Snow White', she was so appealing. They win the tickets to Gulliver Land.
    • 2nd, Joshua and Sam Brister, two kids on tricycles in Carters Close. These models were excellent.
    • 3rd, The models of 'The Pole Dancer' and the little Sherington School girl, in Perry Lane.
    • 4th, Ryan and Jemma Parkinson, with Lord and Lady Carter, in Carters Close. Very simple but so effective.
  • Because of the very high standard, all the children's entries will receive a framed certificate, i.e. 1st, 2nd and Highly Commended for all the others.

  History Quiz

  • Although 35 question sheets were sold, only one was returned. The winner of the Family Ticket to Bletchley Park is Andrew Paul, with 28 correct answers.

  • Thank you to everyone who participated. 1,999 tickets were sold. £350 went in prize money, but we still need to work out how much will be returned to groups who helped sell tickets. For the record, all proceeds sold by St Laudís went into the general fund for overall distribution. Thank you all very much. It was a tremendous result.
