Julian was also the winner of the Wilfred Kind Cup for Best Domestic , the Eli Godfrey Glass Plate for his Jam tarts, and the wooden bowl for Best Fruit.

A total of 13 children put in 37 entries and Christian Collins won the Harold Braley Cup for Best Children's Entry. Katherine George was the Children’s Champion. Quite a winning day for the Georges!

We were pleased to have Chloe Lambert to present the prizes – it wouldn’t be the same without her. All in all, it was a very successful day, with an increase in entrants and entries which makes all the hard work worth it.

Community Message

from Aylesbury Neighbourhood Watch

We have been informed that delivery of the Aylesbury Phone Book will commence on the 30th September, with deliveries in the area being made in the following 2 - 3 weeks.

Delivery agents have been instructed by the distribution company not to leave directories on view from the street, however they state it is unavoidable that some books will be left outside. If this happens, the company are hoping that community minded neighbours will bring in the books where possible.

If you have any queries about the delivery of the Aylesbury Phone Book (not Yellow Pages), you can contact the distribution Company, DEYA, on 01189 777241.
