Once again I would like to take the time to thank the pupils in your school who entered the Willoughby Memorial Trust’s Lincolnshire School Poetry Competition. The Presentation Evening was held at the Willoughby Memorial Gallery in Corby Glen last Friday and I attach a photograph of the event which I thought you might like to see. You may recognise one of your pupils there although a couple of prize winners were not able to attend the evening. Baroness Willoughby de Eresby, the Chairman of the Trust, is pictured on the left and Camilla McLean, Stamford Poet Laureate and judge is pictured on the right. This photograph along with the winning poems will be placed on the Willoughby Memorial Gallery’s website shortly, www.willoughbygallery.com.
We are already looking forward to the competition in 2017 and the theme will be ‘Freedom’!!
