A big thank you to all who took part in the Malpas 100 Years On Poem Competition.
There was a brilliant response to the competition, with 30 Poems in all being received.
The winning entries from the 3 categories were selected by our local historians. These were all then forwarded on to Mr Keith Ogden, the area representative of the Royal British Legion Riders to chose the overall winner.
The overall winner was deemed to be Lola Bickley, our 1st place Junior entry.
Hanging bodies over barb wire
Trenches clattering side to side
Women and Children working and wondering
When will peace come?
At a presentation event at Malpas Alport Primary school Lola handed over a copy of her poem to Royal British Legion Riders who then set off for the Menim Gate in Belgium were they laid a copy of Lola's poem yesterday.
All poem entries will be on display during the Malpas 100 Years On commemoration event on 9th, 10th and 11th November.
