One of the oldest competitions in the Hunstanton and District Festival of Arts summer programme is the Churches Bible Reading Competition.
This year 60 youngsters from Hunstanton Infants, Redgate Junior, Dersingham Primary, Brancaster Primary and Glebe House School took part. They could choose between two readings from the Old and New Testaments pre-selected by Roisin Wellard in her last year as competition organiser.
Adjudicating the event was retired teacher Christine Earnshaw.
The winner of the year two group was Macey Jezeph from Hunstanton Infant School. Year three joint first places went to Maddie Lough, Maisie Haskins and Ted Coleman.
In year four there were two winners – Edward Pearson from Glebe School and Sonny Coldman from Redgate.
Year five’s winners were Scarlett Martin and Alex Caldicott.
In year six, Edward Golding from Brancaster Primary, Hassan Miah from Redgate Junior and Madison Boldero from Glebe House School took the honours.
In her last year of organising the competition Roison Wellard said: “Over the past few years we’ve enjoyed a consistently high standard from the local schools and this competition experience is so valuable for the youngsters.”
