Annual Prizegiving

The annual Prizegiving and Year 8 Leavers’ evening at the Robert Bloomfield Middle School in Shefford was held on 19 July. This is, in fact, the fifth such occasion at which a representative of the Society has presented the Creative Writing Award funded by the Society.

The prizewinning student Rowan Lewis was presented with an attractively bound hardback copy of the Penguin anthology Poems for Life, which, though regrettably not including any poem by Bloomfield, seemed an appropriate award to such a gifted young writer as Rowan. Membership Secretary Angela Underhill once again attended the evening to make the presentation.
