Literacy Competition: 2015

Cirencester Soroptimists recently held their annual Literacy Awards evening where we were very lucky to be joined by Mark Harris, Mayor of Cirencester and children’s author Christopher Edge.  Mark and Christopher gave a presentation to the parents and children followed by the prize giving.
Here are some photos, including some of the winners with Mark Harris and Christopher Edge, and of Soroptimist and Project Leader Margaret Munroe and fellow Soroptimist Marietta Crockford.

This project goes from strength to strength with 12 schools taking part and 1000 entries. It is a mammoth undertaking, sending out the competition packs to all the schools, collecting the entries and marking them!
