Summer Lunch and 2015 Non-Fiction Competition Results.
Our summer lunch took place at Nantyffin Cider Mill Inn near Crickhowell on what seemed to be a chilly Autumn day.
We enjoyed wonderful food in delightful surroundings. The highlight was the prize-giving for the Richard Booth Non-Fiction Competition, Richard and his wife Hope joined us for lunch.
The judge this year was Colin McDowell: Top fashion commentator, journalist and academic who has also published twenty books. For many years Colin was the chief fashion writer for the Sunday Times and in 2008 awarded an MBE for services to fashion. He is a fellow of The Royal Society of Arts and in 2010 he was appointed Senior Fellow of the Royal College of Art.
Colin McDowell was unable to attend the lunch so Richard Booth kindly made the presentations for the prize which bears his name.
The winners for 2015 were
First prize : Emma van Woerkom
Joint second: Frances Copping and Jenny Green.
Congratulations to you.
