Terry Stevens Memorial Award 2017

Every year the Society presents the Terry Stevens Memorial Award in recognition to a Society member who has gone above and beyond the call of duty. This year the members voted for Rob Jerome to take home the trophy. Rob works tirelessly behind the scenes - helping with props, scenery and many other things. Rob is also an extremely talented cartoonist so you're likely to see him at trade fairs with his terrific creation Norman the Fox. Well done Rob!


Treasure Hunt competition winner

Many congratulations to Alex Palmer for winning the Treasure Hunt competition during show week. £100 - woohoo! Thanks to everyone who took part. 

Charity collection

We had a stunning result in the after-show collection - £1,301!! Incredible! Thanks so, so much to everyone who dipped in to their pockets - the generosity is humbling, so thank you. Here's Jim (Bethany) and Penny (Rebecca) presenting Carl & Tanya Appleby the enormous cheque, which is part of their fundraising efforts in memory of their son, Vincent, who passed away through leukemia. The money is heading straight towards the wonderful people at Poole Hospital's Durlston Ward.
