  • I am really grateful to the John Elworthy, Editor at Cambridgeshire Times and Jan French & others for helping to promote the competition this year. I have just been reminded that we omitted to include an under 5's group this year and I have put in more resources to purchase prizes & certificates so that a junior group will be included. All mums & playgroup leaders please note, your young people are welcome to enter, please put their name, address and age clearly on the entry form and we will have a section just for them.
