End-of-Year Competition Results

My apologies for the late posting of results. Amongst the chaos during our house repairs I’m afraid quite a few things have been delayed or neglected but the house is finally back to its old self and I am endeavouring to unpack all the boxes that were hastily stowed last year and get back to some kind of order!

Please find the results here : Results
