SCATTY AWARD 2015

This year’s Scatty Award was a fiercly fought competition with the highest number of applications for many years which was great to see. All those who applied submitted really well thought out and written letters. It certainly made the decision a really hard one! It was very important that the selecting panel were independant and that they chose fairly on the merits of the applications recieved and they reached a unanimous decision.  So without further ado, the winner of this year’s £500 Scatty Award is ALICE DERRYMAN!

Well Done Alice, Congratulations!!!!
