A GREAT AFTERNOON AT THE BOOKSHOP

_mg_2398The awards for The  Cheltenham Prize were presented at the Suffolk Anthology bookshop in Cheltenham last Sunday (9th October).  Kim Fleet presented the cash prizes and Helene Hewett presented the book tokens for the runners-up.

You will find the judge’s report on the appropriate page on this blog, followed by my report as organiser.  The judge’s report doesn’t name the prizewinners as the entries were judged anonymously, but as you can see from my previous post the overall winner was Robert Smith of Glagow and the best entry from a GL  postcode was Belinda Rimmer of  Bishops Cleeve.  Pam Turner and  Christine Griffin were the runners-up.

Robert’s entry, The Quality of Mercy, and Belinda’s entry Banksy each have a page to themselves and although the runners up didn’t get a chance to read at the Awards their entries, Two-way Street (Pam Turner) and on A Clear Day (Christine Griffin) are also published here.
