As these are national competitions, winners were sent to the District (Essex) competition and those winners are sent to the national Rotary competition.

Brian Tranter said: “The Rotary Club of Dunmow holds several competitions for young people from five to 18 every year.

“Usually we hold a special awards evening in May, but due to Covid, this was postponed, and the awards are being presented in schools this year.

“The judges were impressed with the over all standard of the entries, and wish to thank all those taking part.”
