A big ‘Thank you! to everyone who entered the competition, it was a pleasure to read such a varied, interesting, spooky and funny set of short stories.
After much deliberation, cogitation and consideration the top three are:
1st Place: Linda Cooper for “Over the top”
2nd Place: David Smith for “Eleanor”
3rd Place: Barbara Daykin for “The Lure”
This was the first such competition run by The Village Gazette and it revealed some exceptional ‘hidden’ talent.
Having ‘tested the waters’ there may well be another competition in the pipeline…let’s see what the New Year brings.
Well done everyone – be proud!
