The winners of the ‘design the programme cover for the play’ competition were Eva Biggs and Charlie Foster. The best actor/singer awards went to: Izzy Sharp, Bobby Grey, Ella Reading, Oscar Vatcher and Josie Kingscott. And finally the winners of the Road Safety poster competition were: 1st place: Junior Grey and Hugo Charnley-Ward; 2nd place: Jess Davies and Amalie Hopkins; 3rd place: Dominic Withers. The winners of this competition will hopefully have their designs printed onto serviettes in Oldbury Shop, to remind motorists and cyclist to travel at 20mph through our village. A big ‘well done!’ goes to all our competition winners.
