Just when you thought Christmas was behind you
As the song says 'Close your eyes, close your eyes, let your thoughts just drift away' and that is what Nick Gallant encouraged the audience to do in February at the prize giving of the 2019 Christmas Story competition. Before we knew what was happening by remembering the sights, smells and sounds of Christmas we were transported back to Christmas time and made ready to hear the winning stories read out loud by professional story teller, Nick Gallant.
The competition was supported by Amersham, Chesham and Great Missenden Rotary Clubs and the Presidents of the three Clubs together with Andy Calvert, Assistant District Governor, presented the prizes.
143 stories were entered and the high standard of the 18 winning stories made it a delightful evening not only for the winners but for their parents, relatives, teachers and heads. Our thanks go to everybody who supported the event and in particular to the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre for donating Golden Tickets for the first place stories
