We at North Cheshire were delighted to see once again an attendance of about 100 visitors each evening to these inter- club competitions which seem to go from strength to strength. Our congratulations go to Chorley PS who picked up the winning trophies at both events, but we salute all the club’s taking part on the high standard of submissions. Thanks go to their hard-working selectors whose diligence ensured all entries were in by the deadline and, almost without exception, in the correct format. This helps with the smooth running of the competitions on the night of course. Our two judges from the YPU, Howard Tate and Ray Bramall, also deserve a big pat on the back for playing their part in such a friendly but professional manner. We like to think that all visitors go home with a smile on their face at least – if not a raffle prize – to show for their participation.
Perhaps our one regret was that our famous illuminated print stands were not illuminated this year for the first time. The lights went missing but mysteriously re-appeared buried beneath a pile of rubble beneath the stage as the exhibition was dismantled. Hopefully this did not detract unduly from your viewing of our exhibition prints. Next year should see the displays better than ever.
We look forward to welcoming you all back to Poynton in 2020.
