Thank you to everyone who entered our Easter Competition and thank you, also to the judges who had a very difficult task! 

You will see below the prize winners for each activity ... for some activities the judges wanted to award more prizes so that is why some activities have more prize winners.  I have included some of their comments.  Please don’t be upset if you haven’t won a prize … we have all loved seeing your entries.  Everyone named below will get a prize … please be patient though as some of the things we have ordered haven’t arrived yet and we will need to post them out to you.

And… here are the results …
